Boys' testicles develop in the abdomen prior to birth and typically descend to their normal position in the scrotum before birth. When a testicle cannot be found in the scrotum, it is considered undescended.
The condition occurs in up to 30 percent of premature boys, 4 percent of full term boys, and can be present on one side or both.
When a testicle cannot be found in the scrotum, it is considered undescended. This can occur because:
Close examination by a pediatric urologist can help determine the position of the testicle and the appropriate treatment course. In many cases, the testicle will descend on its own in the first 3-6 months of life. In other cases, the position of the testicle can be corrected surgically.
If your child has been diagnosed, you probably have lots of questions. We can help. If you would like to schedule an appointment, refer a patient or speak to our staff, please call our offices.
