Is it possible that my son was born with just one testicle?

Maybe: For that to happen, some event during pregnancy would have cut off the blood supply and it just self destructed.Testes originate near the kidneys and travel a lot during pregnancy. It is more likely still present somewhere between the lower abdomen and its proper position in the scrotum.An ultrasound can sometimes locate it.Then a pediatric urologist can retrieve and move it down. ...Read more

Please tell me, could a man born with one testicle impregnant a woman?

Please tell me, could a man born with one testicle impregnant a woman?

Yes: As long as the single testis is making healthy sperm, one will do quite well. The other issue is why just one. If a proper workup has not been done, it is important he other testis should be looked for. If it is in the abdomen it can become cancerous and be too far along to save the patient. ...Read more

My son was born with one testicle. Can he have a replacement?

My son was born with one testicle. Can he have a replacement?

Replacement ?: The workup of this problem includes looking for the missing testicle, which could be high in the groin or inside the abdomen. The area is explored at surgery and if found, an attempt is made to bring the testicle into the scrotum.If there is no testicle a synthetic one could be placed.Waiting until puberty to do so could avoid repeated surgeries. ...Read more

Can boys be born with three testicles?

Can boys be born with three testicles?

Yes! But very rare.: A boy can have more than two testicles, a condition called polyorchidism. This is extremely rare, with a 2009 meta-analysis documenting only 140 histologically confirmed cases in the literature. The exact cause is unknown, but some event in the fetus at 8 weeks causes the developing genital tissue to divide abnormally. Treatment is controversial, with some having the extra testis removed. ...Read more

Sir, actually one of my relative born with only one testicle so is there any chance of any disease and can he become a father of healthy baby..?

Undescended testis: Ideally, the testicle is either brought down from the abdomen region or removed in the first several months to couple of years after birth. This practice promotes fertility and prevents cancerous changes. That being said, men with one healthy normal testicle can still father children. Best wishes ...Read more

What happened if anyone born with one testicle! did he will face any problem in his sex life or anything else?

What happened if anyone born with one testicle! did he will face any problem in his sex life or anything else?

Depends on situation: Testicles are made next to the kidneys and travel to the scrotum in fetal life. If one did not travel down, it could have been destroyed or still remain in the abdomen. An abdominal testis is more likely to develop cancer or cause problems for the normal testis. Most would do an ultrasound to see if a testis remained in the abdomen & if present, remove it in a 20yo ...Read more

When i toch my testicles i see there is small third piece of testicles .What is that.Is it it normal or.What i need to do.

Spermatocele: Which is name for cyst of the epididymis or hydrocele of the cord, most likely explanation. Both are benign. Less likely an inguino-scrotal hernia, however, best to see dr and get a scrotal ultrasound which will give the answer. Unlikely to be an extra-testicular tumor. Good luck. ...Read more

I seem to have a third (smaller) testicle... its creeping me out.  doc says its nothing but nothing else what is it and what do i do about it?

Benign if not hard: Could be head of epidydimis, epidydimal cyst / spermatocele, swollen or edematous appendix testis. Supernumerous (an extra) testis is very uncommon, but can occur. Third testis will have been there sinc birth & grows at same rate as other testis within that half of scrotum. Scrotal ultrasound would give U a definitive diagnosis, but probably unnecessary. ...Read more
