A 46-year-old member asked:

help please! is being an undescended testicle man can affect my future child from being normal?

Interesting question: I'd first consider it a risk to your own health and fertility. If that testicle remains in your abdomen at has a higher risk of testicular cancer in your lifetime and can decrease your fertility. Should you escape both issues, any sperm that swims hard enough to do the deed should be normal.The weak ones don't make it.

A member asked:

If my child has not had an adverse reaction to a vaccine, can I be sure he will not have one in the future?

Dr. Michael Coogan
Pediatrics 48 years experience
No: Any medicine or procedure has inherent risks and benefits. However, the actual risk of an vaccine adverse event happening is very small. Nevertheless, if you think your child may have had an adverse event following immunization, let your doctor know, develop a plan of action with her, and consider whether to report it to the vaers.

A member asked:

If my child has a fever, will he have a febrile seizure?

5 doctor answers12 doctors weighed in
Dr. Ruben Nazario
Specializes in Pediatrics
No: Febrile seizures are common in children between 6 months and 6 years of age. They occur when your child's temperature raises rapidly. So, no, not all children with fevers will have a febrile seizure. About one in twenty-five children in this age group will have a febrile seizure. But the risk is slightly higher if your child has a sibling who has had a febrile seizure in the past.
