hi im a concerned mother my son's (5) scrotum is almost flush as though he has no testicals how ever he does both are there we have asked doctors all they say is he is healthy, I just need to know that he will not have any medical complications because of this......can any one help?
Were the physicians able to palpate the testicles in the scrotum?
Were any tests done like a testicular ultrasound?
Was your son born full term?
Full term males would have both testes in the scrotal sac at the time of birth. Premature newborns may have greater risk for undescended testes however, at one year of age most of them will have both their testes in the scrotal sac.
Talk to your son's physicians and discuss with them your concerns.
Keep us posted for anything.
