User :   as it is said that if the testis is undescended it happens to have cancer changes
User :   so is it ok to go through operation and get removed testis
User :   Yeah
User :   yes it is
User :   what about the fertility
User :   One should not worry about the fertility as the other testis should be working fine

User :   and the count is 20 to 40 million per ml
User :   you can test for it
User :   as sperm analyiss
User :   actually the testis is in inguinal cannal so doctor told me that he can brought it down and place in the scrotum but it may cause affect to the other testis too is there any problem really if we brought down the testis and place in scrotum?
User :   As I told you the testis might have undergone transformational changes
User :   It can be brought down and fixed in the scrotum
User :   but it depends on the testis how it is now in the canal
User :   is it be able to hold on in the scrotum
User :   the size of it
User :   this will be known to the surgeon who is performing it
User :   so what ever it may be there is no problem if we have one testis right
User :   yes
