How to Prevent Undescended Testes
There is no known way to prevent undescended testes. Preventable complications of undescended testes may occur, however, as your child grows and matures. These include:
- Infertility In Men or testicular cancer in adulthood.
- Injury to the undescended testes.
- Emotional stress-While surgery usually results in a normal appearing scrotum, the undescended testis is sometimes smaller than the normal one. If your son becomes concerned about this as an older child or adolescent, a prosthesis (artificial replacement) can be placed in the scrotum.
