Undescended Testes

Shortly before birth, the testicle typically moves from the abdomen to its normal position. Occasionally, however, the testicle fails to move – for one of a number of reasons. Undescended testes can be treated through a series of hormone injections, though the most effective treatment is through surgery. It is recommended that this disorder be treated within the child’s first year to prevent further damage.
