There is hope ahead.

If you found this page, you or a loved one has likely been diagnosed with testicular cancer.
This can be a challenging time as you process a lot of emotions and new information about treatment options and the long-term impact of cancer treatment.

You're not alone.

  • Testicular cancer is the most common cancer affecting males aged 15 to 351
  • 9,910 new cases of testicular cancer reported in the US in 20222
  • Average age of diagnosis is 33 years2

There's good news.

Testicular cancer is treated successfully in
more than 95% of cases
at a 5-year-relative survival rate.2

The most common primary treatment is orchiectomy, surgical removal of one or both testicles.

While testicular cancer has one of the highest average 5-year relative survival rates of any cancer, you may have concerns about life after treatment, and the physical and emotional effects of having a testicle removed.

With you on the whole journey

If you find yourself sharing some of these concerns,
or worry that you may once your cancer treatment is behind you, it’s important to know that there are options that may help you feel whole again and regain your confidence.

Torosa® Testicular Implant

Thousands of men each year choose to restore part of what was lost,5 by receiving a Torosa Testicular Implant. A testicular implant is designed to help restore a more natural look and feel of the testicles in the scrotum.

It’s more than just a cosmetic solution —
50-60% of men reported
improved body image after receiving an implant.6

Torosa implants are available in multiple sizes to help match the size of the testicles that were removed. The firmness of the implant can also be customized to allow a natural look and feel.

The benefits are real

While it is important to know that a testicular implant is not a functioning testicle, the benefits provided have been shown to have positive psychological impact and high levels of patient satisfaction.


Trusted and approved for over 20 years

Compared to other implants on the market, the Torosa implant has been rigorously tested and has been approved by the FDA since 2002. In fact, it’s the only testicular implant with FDA approval.

Depending on patient and doctor preference, the implant can be placed at the same time as the testicle is removed or it can be done later in a separate procedure.8

98% of patients believe it’s important they be offered a testicular implant…7
but only 47% of them are.5,8

Advocate for yourself

While nearly all testicular cancer patients say they would want to be offered the option of an implant, less than half of them are presented with this information by their doctor.7, 8 When you’re facing a cancer diagnosis, removing the cancer is naturally the primary focus.

But it’s not too early to ask whether a testicular implant may be right for you—and whether it should be done at the same time as your cancer surgery. Clinical studies recommend all patients undergoing surgical removal of the testicle should be offered a testicular implant, regardless of age.9

Ask your doctor

If you think an implant could be an option for you, ask your doctor the following questions:

Am I a candidate for a Torosa testicular implant?

If I have the implant, can I still have radiation?

Could I have the implant placed at the same time as my testicle removal, or after?

Is the implant covered by my insurance?

Torosa® Saline-Filled Testicular Prostheses Important Safety Information

Torosa Saline-Filled Prosthesis is a surgically implanted artificial testicle designed to replicate the size, shape, and feel of one or two testicles following surgical removal, or the absence of a testicle (agenesis) in males.

The Coloplast Torosa Saline-Filled Testicular Prosthesis is intended for use when cosmetic testicular replacement is indicated i.e., in the case of agenesis or following the surgical removal of a testicle.

The implantation of testicular prosthetic implants is contraindicated in the presence of infection or abnormal growth (neoplasm).

A testicular implant in patients with pre-existing enlargement of the scrotum (varicocele) may result in persistent pain. Due to the nature of silicone implants, testicular implants should not be considered lifetime implants and require replacement surgery over time. Torosa should typically not be implanted in patients with a documented sensitivity to silicone. These patients should discuss the risks of this implant with their physician. Patients with disorders such as lupus, scleroderma and myasthenia gravis should discuss the risks of this implant with their physician. Sepsis, hemorrhage or thrombosis may result from the placement of any foreign object in the body. An oversized implant can lead to potential complications such damage or loss of tissue (necrosis) or foreign body reaction leading to formation of blood clots (thrombosis). Excessive scarring and/or tightening around the implant (capsular formation or contracture) may occur.

Discuss all available treatment options with your doctor to understand the risks and benefits of a testicular implant.

Potential Complications
The following device-related and procedure-related events were experienced during the clinical study for this device: discomfort/pain, swelling (edema), extrusion, displacement/migration, hematoma, abnormal tissue formation (keloid, fibrosis, granuloma), implant deflation, fluid accumulation (inguinal area), constipation, numbness/weakness (neuropathy) in legs/feet, and surgical site infection (abscess).

Advice to Patient
Resize of the implant may be elected in the future for young males implanted prior to body maturation.

This treatment is prescribed by your physician. Discuss the treatment options with your physician to understand the risks and benefits of the various options to determine if a testicular implant is right for you.

Caution: Federal law (USA) restricts this device to sale by or on the order of a physician.
