Testosterone: The only way to answer your question is to make an appointment to see an Endocrinologist. You will be carefully treated and feel great after that!
Dr. James Ferguson

Hard to say: You only need one to have a normal testosterone level & have normal fertility.Having it reach a normal size after puberty is a good indicator it should be working normally but without testing it directly it is hard to say & not important enough to try.The benefit for bringing it into normal position is making it available to exam. Undescended testis have a higher risk of testis cancer.
Dr. Ed Friedlander
Pathology 44 years experience
Probably: A man with one testis will produce as much testosterone as a man with two. It's produced on demand from the pituitary gland. You're 22 years old. If you're horny and getting good erections and ejaculations like the other guys your age, stop worrying. If it's normal-size, chances are it's also producing sperms. Do check it from time to time -- tumor risk. Best wishes.
