Testicular atrophy is a medical condition in which the male reproductive organs (the testes, which in humans are located in the scrotum) diminish in size and may be accompanied by loss of function. This does not refer to temporary changes, such as those brought on by cold.[citation needed]

Testicular atrophy may be brought on by surgical repairs to certain types of hernias.[1]
