Examine in tub: Place him in a warm bath & see if you can feel them then. Occasionally they will withdraw high into the sac/groin but drop in this setting. If you still cannot feel them let his doc know. In some cases they do not complete the journey from inside the abdomen to the sac & must be located & brought down surgically.
