Undescended Testis

Important History:

  • If there is past history/documentation of both testes definitely being scrotal, then if one or both testes are impalpable subsequently they are like to be retractile rather than undescended.
  • If there is doubt that testes have ever been scrotal - REFER.
  • Indirect signs of undescended testis- underdeveloped hemiscrotum on that side.
  • May descend up to the age of 9 months. If still undescended- please refer.
