TOP Doctors for Undescended testicle (Cryptorchidism)
At an undescended testicle, at least one testicle is not in its natural position in the scrotum, but in the inguinal canal or lower abdominal cavity.
Most of the time it is a congenital phenomenon (primary undescended testicles). In children, the misfortune already occurs immediately after birth. Only in rare cases, a testicle is initially in the correct position and only later assumes a wrong position (secondary testicle elevation).
Various factors can hamper complete testicular descent. One speaks then of a Maldescensus testis. Depending on the height of his walk, the descent stops, the affected testes remain either in the abdominal cavity or in the inguinal canal. So it is higher than normal, hence the term "undescended testicles".
In a secondary undescended testicle, the testicle returns to the inguinal canal or even the abdomen, after he was initially in the scrotum. This happens, for example, through stunted growth or scarring after certain operations.
Testicular upleg is the most common congenital malformation of the genitals. In about one to three percent of the boys born in maturity, at least one testicle does not descend to the scrotum. Among premature babies, the proportion is even higher at 30 percent. In about 1.5 percent of boys, a secondary testicular elevation develops only after birth.
There are basically two different treatment approaches. Conservative therapy attempts to achieve testicular descent using certain hormones. However, the operative displacement of the testicle has a greater chance of success.
