If it was there: If it was there before and it disappeared then yes. If it as always been missing and you have had regular visits to the physician then no. If you have not ever visited a physician then yes you should be concerned and be evaluated by a physician. You ma have an undescended testicle.

Yes: It is important to know if you were born with one testicle or the second testicle did not come down from the abdomen where they develop. It may still be in the abdomen, these misplaced testicles have a high rate of cancer development.
