Undescended testicle: Testicles that fail to descend from the abdomen to the scrotum often end up being infertile or lower fertility. The higher heat in the abdomen is not good for sperm health. It may or may not be too late for him. He should see a urologist. Parents, let this be a lesson i f you desire grandchildren...your son's testicles should be down by their first birthday..if not, see a specialist!
