i am 22 year old male.
i am having the problem of undescended testicle. nothing was reported at the time of birth. it is noticed at the time of of circumcision(the process of removing the round part on the edge above the conical vascular body of the penis) followed among Muslims.
the disorder is that one of the testis is not in scrotum. it is above the abdominal position.in the left part of the bladder..
although i am not facing any problem, i recall i was facing little pain two or three times pain within last two years.
so the all i want to know that whether will it make any problem in future?
if it is what is the solution?
The testicles in the scrotum are at a temperature that is two to three degrees lower than normal body temperature to produce sperm normally. The scrotum is the ideal location for the testicle. Testicles which have not descended into the scrotum will not function normally. They can be a cause of infertility and there is also a higher risk of hernia and testicular cancer. The only available treatment option is surgery called an orchiopexy. The success rate with surgery is almost 98%.It is advisable to consult a surgeon and get it operated. I sincerely hope it helps.
Best wishes and regards!
