The spermatic cord is a structure of the male reproductive system that connects the inguinal canal of the abdomen
to the testicle. Cylindrical in form, it consists of the vas deferens, nerves, lymph nodes
, and blood
vessels, all connecting to the testicles. Torsion of the spermatic cord is one of the disorders that can affect
this area. This results in very severe testicular pain
and should be considered a surgical emergency.
