Brief Answer: No, Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for your query. Rarely in some people with undescended testis, the testis can descend in young adulthood. Most of times it is the intestines or the omentum comprising hernia. It is better to be examined to determine what it is descending in the sac. This could not be cancer, although there is increased risk of testicular germ cell tumors in people with undescended testis. Regards,
