Testicle: If there is no pain or other problem, at age 39 nothing needs to be done. If anything needs to be done is removal..
Dr. George Klauber
Specializes in Pediatric Urology
Consult urologist: Secondary reascent is known complication of orchidopexy surgery. Might be worth fixing again, although won't affect fertility at your age. Would be more cosmetic than functional.

A 21-year-old member asked:

What is the difference between seminoma and nonseminoma cancer of the testicles?

2 doctor answers4 doctors weighed in
Dr. Matthew Thom
Urology 15 years experience
Different tumors: Over 90% of testis tumors are germ cell tumors which are seminoma, non-seminoma or mixed depending on the type of malignant cell. Classic seminoma is the most common testis tumor in adults. Almost all testis tumors are initially treated by surgical removal (orchiectomy). Then, based on the type of tumor and stage (aggressive characteristics, spread to lymph nodes) determines next treatment.
A 21-year-old member asked:

Will there be a frozen section biopsy before removing the testicle?

2 doctor answers3 doctors weighed in
Dr. Moez Khorsandi
Urology 27 years experience
No: If there are concerns of testicualr cancer, surgery is the first step requiring radical surgery. A frozen section is never performed becuase it may yield a false negative reading intra-operatively. In addition a biopsy of the testicle at the time of surgery may cause spreading of the cancer and disrupt the normal covering layers of the testicle.

When are aortic aneurysm repairs performed?

2 doctor answers9 doctors weighed in
Dr. Francis Uricchio
Cardiology 38 years experience
Based on size: The risk of rupture of an aortic aneurysm increases with its size (diameter). When the size reaches a certain threshold, the risk of rupture becomes substantial. At this point, a repair is justified either with surgery or a percutaneous stent graft.
Dr. J. Lawrence Dohan
Dermatology 57 years experience
Depends. Man or woman? Thoracic or abdominal? Age? Symptoms? Effect on other organs? Mental and general health status?
