I thought that his other testicle had not dropped but was told by his doc. today that it is actually dropped but very small. Will this effect him bearing children? Is there any treatment for this?

Hi Lifelite,

Just to be sure, his other testicle is normal sized?

It is too early to say if there will be any problems but if the other testicle is normal sized then it is unlikely there will be any problems. Both testicles will grow as your son approaches puberty.

Hi there,
If I am not mistaking this condition is called cryptorchidism and it is not that rare as you might think it is. The first thing is first, this is not a painful condition and in most cases this is a birth condition, which means that in most cases this happen when your son was still developing in your stomach. Only thing that you have to worry is the possibility of injury of the testicles because the chances are a bit high that smaller testicle will get more injured then normal one. In some cases if the condition is problematic surgery might help, but you have to talk to your doctor about this issue.

All the best,
Danella
