Urologist 's  Response
Undescended testes which are not brought down till adulthood can lead to a few consequences of which infertility is one among them.In your case, laproscopy may need to be done to locate the testis and at the same sitting they need to be brought down to the scrotum. However, it does not guarantee that the sperm count will improve. It may take 2 laproscopical procedures over a period of 6 months to bring the testis in a staged manner. Also, while bringing down the testis, your urologist will do a frozen section or biopsy of your testicles and if any thing suspicious, that testis may have to be removed. however you need to see a urologist in person who will be able to decide the best plan of treatment after examining you and reviewing you scan reports.
