My son is 1yr old. At his checkup, his doctor had to search for his testicles in his groin. He brought testicles down to his scrotum. Undescended?

3 doctors agree

In brief: Here are some...

If the "missing" testicle could be easily and manually manipulated from inguinal region down to the scrotum, his such testicle is called retractile, not undescended testicle, which is worthwhile to just watch and see for at least additional 6 months if you and doctor can reliably collaborate.
If not or not evolving as expected, bring it down surgically (orchiopexy) by skillful surgeon, More? see..
