Undescended Testicle


Undescended testicle is a condition where one or both testicles fail to move from abdomen into the scrotum before birth.

Its causes are not known.


  • Empty scrotum

Usually, testes descend into the scrotum on their own within the first year after birth. In other cases, treatment may include:

  • Hormone therapy with hCG
  • Surgical repositioning of the testes into the scrotum

There is no way to prevent this condition.
