Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Testes are one of the reproductive organs for the production of sperm and the hormone testosterone. So, with a good condition of the reproductive organs, the ability of a man to continue the offspring will be better, because of healthy sperm production and healthy reproductive organs.
In the event of a disruption in testicular function, due to impaired sperm production, disruption of testicular blood flow, or due to certain specific processes such as testicular cancer, then in general the reproductive function will decrease with various implications.
To find out whether there are abnormalities in the testes and reproductive disorders, then the patient should consult directly with an andrologist or oncologist for interviews, physical examinations, supporting examinations. The results of the examination will be the basis for handling patients related to the causes of reproductive disorders.
In connection with your question, if a patient's testicles have been taken (orchiectomy) on the one hand due to indications of testicular cancer, then in general healthy testes can still function well for reproductive function.
However, if a healthy testicle is at risk of developing cancer or must be taken because of indications of cancer in the left side of the testis, then this can cause some side effects that may be experienced, such as:
1. infertility, or an infertile condition
2. secondary sex growth is disrupted
3. reduced muscle mass
4. easily anxious or depressed
5. Erectile Disorders
6. bone loss
7. male breast enlargement
However, it is important that you immediately consult with your doctor to find out your health condition and the risk of interference with your left testicle. Thus, as early as possible the risk can be suppressed and controlled properly.
