Thanks for feedback.
In spite the fact that Correct Surgery was done at proper age, the testis has not grown up .

Please consult qualified Urologist or the Surgeon who has performed surgery and get your ultrasound scanning of the scrotum done to assess the size of the testis.

Now there are no chances of increasing size of thee the said testis.

Thanks and Regards.
