Has anyone had their son, ages 3-5, have surgery for undescended testicles?

Has anyone had their son, ages 3-5, have surgery for undescended testicles?

Yes. : Since there is a significantly higher risk of cancer if the undescended testicle is operated on after puberty, the recommendation is for early correction. Age 3-5 can be difficult, of course, since they are more aware of their genitals & have been potty trained than those age 3 or less. The most important thing is to first have a full evaluation by a pediatric urologist. ...Read more

Had operation for testicle to drop, infertile?

Had operation for testicle to drop, infertile?

No, not necesarily: So if you had an operation for 1 undescended testis, then you should still have one normal testicle. If that is the case, then the normal testicle should still be fertile. The undescended one is often sterile. The best way to answer this question is to check with your surgeon and/or test your sperm count and functionality. ...Read more

I had a testicular tortion surgeon 8 years ago. They took my one testis. Will I have any problem in future ?

Unilkely: Having surgery for testicular torsion does not generally cause long-term issues if it was treated in a timely fashion. If left untreated for a long period of time, one can develop autoantibodies to sperm which can cause sperm damage in the other testicle. If there is difficulty with infertility, a semen analysis is required. ...Read more

Can man 50 years old done fir him kidney transplantation 7years ago married and get children  as normal man?

Needs good care: Typically, a man will have normal fertility after kidney transplant. Graft life expectancy depends on proper care and medical compliance (taking all your meds) and varies somewhat by center but may be ~8 to 12 years for a cadaveric donor or ~12 to 20 years for a living donor. Actual life expectancy can of course be longer. When the kidney fails, you will need dialysis or re-transplantation. ...Read more

If my boyfriend had testicular surgery as a child will he be able to have children?

If my boyfriend had testicular surgery as a child will he be able to have children?

Usually yes: Guys start out with 2 testicles, so if something happens to one of them, the other one alone makes enough hormones and sperm to have a family. So, the question is whether or not he has at least one good testicle. The answer is usually yes, even though nothing is 100% certain in life. ...Read more
