  • 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

    Testicular cancer is the most common cancer in men 15 to 35 years old. Men who have an undescended testicle (a testicle that has never moved down into the scrotum) are at higher risk of developing testicular cancer than men whose testicles have moved normally down into the scrotum.

     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

    Our current projects are looking for associations between information we obtained at the time of the child’s surgery with semen analysis, testis ultrasound and hormonal data we obtained once the patients turned 18. Molecular research is aimed at identifying the genes associated with the causes of an undescended testicle and the long-term possibility of infertility in boys born with undescended testes.
