Orchidectomy

Orchidectomy is the surgical removal of one or both testicles. It may be required for the treatment of testicular cancer and as part of the multimodality treatment of advanced prostate cancer. Occasionally, an orchidectomy is performed in the setting of advanced infection, failed repair after severe trauma or testicular torsion.

There are two types of orchidectomies:

  • Simple orchidectomy – for non-cancerous conditions, involves an incision on the scrotum to remove the testicle
  • Radical orchidectomy – for testicular cancer, involves an incision in the groin to remove both the testicle and spermatic cord

The removed testicle can be replaced with a prosthesis at the same time, through the same incision.
