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.

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.

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
