He is right, you should wait till he is 1 year of age and then go ahead with corrective surgery.

My 8 year old son s testicals appear not to have dropped. My husband pointed it out as he had to have an operation for one undesended testical when he was younger and so was aware that this could be a concern. My son is happy, healthy and appears not to have any toliet issues. I intend to see a doctor this weekend but would like to have an idea of the urgency or seriousness of this issue...should I be worried? What would i most likely hear from the doctor regarding this issue? Your help is much appreciated.

My grandson is 7 and he just mentioned his testicle hurts. When mt son checked he said there is no ball in his scrotum. The ball is up above his penis. His testicle did drop when he was born, can it go back up? He was just brushing his teeth and he must have been leaning against the sink and that s how he noticed the discomfort.

I also find energy severely lacking in the afternoons and general motivation very difficult to muster. My latest results of total test were 9.8 nmol/L

I also had an undescended testes as a baby (surgically brought down).

I went on modafinil thinking I had adhd because of my inability to focus, poor memory and energy though it may not be the case.

Hello, I'm an 80 year old man but this has been going on as long as I can remember. Sometimes, but not always, when I'm standing at the toilet waiting to urinate, as soon as the urine starts to flow, or a split second before, I feel a rush of warmth in my toes, both feet. I've looked for this on the web and a few people report it but apparently most men don't have this experience and don't know about it. I had surgery for hernia / hydrocele / undescended testicle when I was about 14 in case that has anything to do with it.
