Thanks for writing in.

You have a problem with the "visibility" of your testicles. It is not a weird question but needs to be addressed scientifically, in the light of medical science.

The possibility to be considered is that of ascending testicles. You are trying to say that the testicles have actually pulled up into the abdomen.
This is a rare occurrence and may happen when the opening that the testes descended through does not completely close. In some cases, they can get "stuck up there". This would be a serious problem. However, consultation with a surgeon can confirm this. Only a can determine if you need some treatment along these lines. If necessary an ultrasound scan of lower abdomen and scrotum may be necessary to locate the testicles.

It is reasonable enough that the ascending testicles can come back to their normal position after a back massage.

Hope your query is answered.
