• Age. Testicular torsion is most common between ages 12 and 16.
  • Previous testicular torsion. If you've had testicular pain that went away without treatment (intermittent torsion and detorsion), it's likely to occur again. The more frequent the bouts of pain, the likelier the testicle is to be permanently damaged.
  • Family history of testicular torsion. The condition may run in families.
