4 yr old son's retractile testes
My son went to the pediatrician today for his 4 year old check up and she could not find his testicals.  She finally pulled them down into his scrotum but they went back up.  She said to moniter him and to try to pull them down in a warm bath.  Should we have a urologist look at him?  I hate to be pulling on him every night at bathtime.  No one has ever mentioned this before but I cannot see them in his scrotum.

Thanks,

Derek

Hi Derek,

How are you? How is your son? Retractile (hypermobile) testes are descended testes that easily move back and forth between the scrotum and the abdomen. Retractile testes do not lead to cancer or other complications. The testes usually stop retracting by puberty and do not require surgery or other treatment.

I hope this helps. Take care and keep us posted.
