What is the Benefit of Testicular Prosthesis?
The effect of testicular loss varies among men. Some men who have lost a testicle are not affected by it; other men are emotionally devastated. Loss of a testicle can lead to depression, poor self-esteem, and difficulty with relationships.
For men who desire a restoration of naturally appearing scrotum and testes after the loss of testicle to trauma or disease, testicular prosthesis insertion provides an effective treatment option for restoration of symmetrical “normal” appearance of the scrotum and testes.
While nothing can restore the normal testicle functionally, a modern testicular prosthesis provides a good solution for men with the desire for an aesthetically normal appearance of the scrotum.
The testicular prosthesis does not produce hormones and cannot help men with low testosterone. Men who suffer from low testosterone would require testosterone replacement therapy.
