Does having one testicle or one split in half stunt your growth ?

Does having one testicle or one split in half stunt your growth
?

No: Our bodies are quite redundant. In other words, we can get by w/one eye, one ear, one lung, one kidney, one testicle, etc (not that we'd want to do so). So loss of one testicle will not impact testosterone level or even sperm production. Therefore, physical growth won't be affected, nor sex drive, nor fertility. ...Read more

Will having a undescended left testicle hinder the growth of my son's penis?

No: The main concern regarding an undescended testicle is having an increased chance of testicular cancer during puberty and beyond. It is still extremely rare in itself. There is also the chance for fertility issues but with a normal other testicle this also shouldn't be an issue. We would recommend bringing the testicle down into the scrotum the earlier the better to decrease these possibilities. ...Read more
