A 16-year-old Utah boy met with the freakiest of accidents after one of his testicles retracted inside him while he was trying to pick a golf ball.
A case study detailing the teen’s scrotal mishap was published recently in the journal “Urology Case Reports.”
According to the wince-worthy account, the young man had felt an “acute” pain in his groin while “leaning over to retrieve a golf ball” from the green.
When the teen inspected his nether regions, he was horrified to discover that his left testicle was not in its usual spot.
Alarmed over the shocking disappearance, the aghast golfer reported to a Salt Lake City hospital, where he reported feeling “ongoing mild abdominal pain with persistent nausea.”
Doctors administered painkillers to the patient and attempted to discover what happened to his family jewel.
A subsequent CT scan revealed that the ball was fortunately intact, but had traveled way off course.
The wayward testicle had ended up in the canal running from his scrotum, nearly into his abdomen, in a condition known as “testicular ascent.”
