Undescended Testes

  • Undescended Testes

Description of Disability:

An undescended testicle (or "testis") is when it fails to drop into the normal place in the scrotum. Most of the time, a boy's testicles descend by the time he is 9 months old. But in some cases, that move or descent doesn't occur, and the baby is born with a condition known as undescended testicles (or cryptorchidism). The most common problems associated with undescended testicles are testicular neoplasm, subfertility, testicular torsion and inguinal hernia. Undescended testicle occurs when one or both testicles fail to move into the scrotum before birth.

Treatment:

Treatment for cryptorchidism can be hormonal, surgical or a combination of the two. In most cases, the testicle will descend without treatment during the child's first year. If this does not occur, treatment may include: Hormone injections (B-HCG or testosterone) to try to bring the testicle into the scrotum and Surgery (orchiopexy) to bring the testicle into the scrotum. This is the main treatment.

Post Operative Care:

Having surgery early may prevent damage to the testicles and avoid infertility. An undescended testicle that is found later in life may need to be removed. This is because the testicle is not likely to function well and could pose a risk for cancer.
