When will my two year olds testicles drop?

Confusing question: The testis normally descend into the scrotum around the 28th week of pregnancy. There persence may be dificult to verify due to peroneal fat, or the presence of fluid in the sac like structure that surrounds them. I don't know what u mean by drop.

Is it normal for two year old to have undescended testicles at times. At times they go up. When other times there in a normal position?

Is it normal for two year old to have undescended testicles at times. At times they go up. When other times there in a normal position?

Likely to be ok: Yes, it is common for the testicles to be pulled up high in the scrotum due to cold or other stimulation. As long as each of them is "down" some of the time and not permanently up in the abdomen, then there is not likely to be a problem. Ask your doctor the next time you have an appointment. S/he can do a careful exam to be sure that both testicles are "descended". ...Read more

I have a two year old son. For the past three days his testicles seem different. I cannot feel his testicles. Should we go to pediatrician?

I have a two year old son. For the past three days his testicles seem different. I cannot feel his testicles. Should we go to pediatrician?

See below: If your son has no symptoms and his scrotum is symmetric (ie one side isn't larger than the other) he most likely has retractile testes. Testes can occasionally be difficult to palpate, particularly in prepubertal boys. If the testes can periodically be felt within the scrotum, there is usually no concern meriting urgent evaluation. You should have him examined with well child checks however. ...Read more

I have two boys one 5 and my oldest is 7, I'm concerned since my 7 year old's penis and testicles are extremely smaller than my 4 year old. HELP

Testes: If he is otherwise healthy this probably is nothing to worry about. His testis and penis will develop over time as he gets to puberty. Penile and testicular development can very between individuals. If you are very concerned have him examined to make sure he does not have any glandular or genetic problem. ...Read more

One of my sons testicles is not in place, only one is. He has just turned two years old. I have been advised to wait, is this the case?

One of my sons testicles is not in place, only one is. He has just turned two years old. I have been advised to wait, is this the case?

Retractile v Undecen: If the testicle is "retractile" then it can be easily manipulated into the bottom of the scrotum and will stay there a moment or two. This does not require intervention. If the testis cannot be placed into the scrotum on exam by a medical professional, this is an "undecended testis" and may need intervention - surgery. It won't resolve after two yrs by itself. ...Read more

Just found out our 10 year old's left testicle is 10% the size of his right. What are possible causes and is he likely to require surgery?

Just found out our 10 year old's left testicle is 10% the size of his right. What are possible causes and is he likely to require surgery?

You may need genetic: counseling. If you son has the most likely cause of testicular atrophy, you want to be sure that he does not become stigmatized by learning of the condition. On the other hand, he may benefit greatly by having testosterone therapy to assure that he will be able to have children. Most men affected with Kleinfelter syndrome find out about their diagnosis at a fertility clinic. ...Read more

My 16 year old son had expressed his worry that his right testicle is changeing from large to small and vice versa on a regular basis, reason to worry?

Probably a hydrocele: Your son probably means that the right side of his scrotum is intermittently enlarging. This would most likely be due to a hydrocele which can easily be repaired by a urologist. Dangerous testicular swellings, due to tumors, are hard, and do not get smaller. ...Read more

My 3 year old baby his testicles swelling 3 days ago but he felt no pain, his activities still normal, but im so worry, please help me.

Confusing question: I don't recall ever having a 3 yo with testicular swelling and if so would do an ultrasound and likely send him to a pediatric urologist. If you have notices the scrotal sac become fuller, that is much more common and could represent water or a hernia. Either way, a visit to the doc is reasonable. ...Read more

33 year old male. Diagnosed with varicocele in left testicle at age of 18. How serious could problems with reproduction and fertility be?

Varicocele: It is estimated that 15% of men have a varicocele that appears during puberty. Evaluation of male factor infertility identifies varicocele a in about 40 %. Obviously, 15% of men are not infertile! But some subset develops problems. Evaluation is needed if testicular atrophy of left testis occurs, if semen analyses have several parameters off, and sometimes when a man waits to have children later ...Read more
