Reasons for Procedure
An orchiectomy may be done to treat:
- Prostate cancer that has spread
- Testicular cancer
- Testicular torsion (when twisting of the spermatic cord cuts off blood supply)
It can also be a diagnostic procedure to determine if cancer is present when a mass is found during ultrasound.
