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.
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.
