Seek a consultation: You need to see a general surgeon or urologist. They must decide if your testis is somewhere in your groin, abdomen or was just lost. Since abdominal testis are more at risk of testicular cancer & can interfere with your fertility it would need to come out. Whether they could move it to proper position or not at your age is less important.They can give you a prosthesis if you want one.

Removal of testis: If you are a 23 year old male and have an undescended testis, it is unlikely to function. It may require removal. See a urologist and or general surgeon. A thorough exam, you most likely have just had and the testis was not found. The doctor will need to see if the testis exists. Talk with your doctor about how to proceed. There are artificial testis available that can be utilized.

A 48-year-old member asked:

Do men often start balding at the crown?

Varies: More than 95% of hair thinning in men is male pattern baldness, or androgenetic alopecia. Male pattern baldness is characterized by hair receding from the lateral sides of the forehead (known as a "receding hairline") and/or a thinning crown (balding to the area known as the ‘vertex’). Both become more pronounced until they eventually meet, leaving a horseshoe-shaped ring of hair back of head.

Dr. Simon Kimm
Urology 16 years experience
Tools for assessment: A voiding diary, or bladder diary, is a way to relate fluid intake with voiding behavior. It is usually performed over 24 or 48 hours, and the time and amount fluids are taken, the time and amount of voids, and any episodes of leakage or symptoms are noted. Doctors use this data to find patterns and help to diagnose problems in urine storage and voiding.

Yes: Get a semen analysis at an infertilty office not a lab because an infertilty sub specilaist will have certified andrologist on staff to properly analyze the specimen.
