  • Undescended Testicle

     Pathophysiology

    Undescended testicle (or Cryptorchidism) is a condition seen in newborns when one or both of the male testes have not passed down into the scrotal sac. Cryptorchidism is more commonly seen in premature males because the testes do not descend from the abdomen to the scrotal sac until the seventh month of fetal development.

     Disease statistics

    Around 17 per cent of male newborns that weigh under 2.3kg have undescended testicles. The lower the birth weight, the higher the risk; nearly 100 per cent of male babies weighing under 907g are born with the condition.

     Disease treatment

     

    It may include: Hormonal therapy- Hormone injections like (B-HCG or testosterone) to try to bring the testicle into the scrotum and is not usually recommended because it is much less effective than surgery, and Surgical repair- To bring the testicle into the scrotum and can be done either with a laparoscope or with open surgery.

     Major research

    Research indicates that boys exposed to phthalates may be more likely to develop smaller genitals and incomplete descent of the testicles. 6 Boys who are born with undescended testicles are 2-8 times more likely to develop testicular cancer later on than men born with both testicles descended 7 (their risk is lessened if they get corrective surgery before age 138).
