What are the problems associated when one does not have any testicles?

Hi there, I would like to know what are problems associated when one does not have any testicles. I had recently gone to an adoption agency and one of the child there was born without any testicles and he is two years old now. I was wondering what are the problems that he might face due to this. Would much appreciate some help with this topic. Thanks Thomas
