Undescended testicle

Pathology

Undescended testicle is a condition in which one or both testicles fail to descend into the correct position in the scrotum during fetal development. This condition can be classified as palpable undescended testicle and non-palpable undescended testicle, depending on whether the testicle can be detected through palpation.

Symptoms

  • Absence of the testicle in the scrotum: The testicle cannot be detected through palpation of the scrotum.
  • Possible swelling or enlargement in the inguinal area: Undescended testicle may cause swelling or enlargement in the inguinal area, where it should be positioned.

Treatment

To determine the most appropriate treatment for palpable and non-palpable undescended testicle, it is advised to schedule an appointment with Professor Christian Gozzi for a specialist consultation.
