Assoc. Prof. Dr. Nguyen Quang (Director of the Center for Andrology), said that this was a rare accident that resulted in testicular trauma. The hospital has received many cases of similar injuries due to daily-life accidents such as being kicked, squeezed in the genital area, motorbike and bicycle traffic accidents.
