I've got an adult friend who's left testicle ascended into his body today and hasn't dropped back down. Any thoughts as to what could cause this?
Hypermobility: An adult male with a testicle that has migrated up into his abdomen (is not palpable) or into his groin, and does not immediately return to the scrotum is at risk for torsion and should be seen/treated by a urologist asap. He will likely require surgical "fixation" of both testicles ("orchiopexy") into the scrotum. ...Read more

Others causes are more benign, such as hydroceles & spermatoceles. A full workup will help determine the cause. ...Read more

Why would one testicle hang much lower than the other one? Spermatocele cannot cause this right? Noticed my left testicle hanging low about 1 wk. Ago
Not abnormal: There is actually an interesting anatomical reason for this. Right gonadal vein empties directly into vena cava. Left empties into renal vein with slightly higher pressure. Thus the above findings you noted can be seen in some men with no abnormal findings. ...Read more
Can a spermatocele cause your testicle to hang much lower than normal? Have one above the left one and it is hanging abnormally low and doesn't retract
Spermatocele: Spermatocele is an abnormal retention cyst or collection of fluid at the epididymis (the "cap" on the back of the testis) or rete testis and depending on the size could cause your left testis to hang "differently" than the right. You should be examined by a physician however, and if bothersome, you could have the spermatocele removed. ...Read more

Most men affected with Kleinfelter syndrome find out about their diagnosis at a fertility clinic. ...Read more
