It consists of making a small incision of about one centimetre at the root of the testicular bags to remove a small sample of the testicular tissue. The different layers of the testicles, as well as the skin, are sutured with re-absorbable stitches (that fall by themselves without need to extract them). After surgery, lasting approximately 15 minutes, the patient can go back home (or to his hotel room). The patient might feel some pain after the procedure that will improve by applying ice locally and by taking analgesics.
