Undescended Testis in Dubai at DRHC Andrology Clinic


Undescended testis, or cryptorchidism, is a condition in which one or both testicles fail to descend into the scrotum before birth. The condition is relatively common in newborns, especially premature babies, and typically resolves within the first few months of life. However, if the testicle does not descend on its own, treatment may be needed to prevent complications.

Symptoms and Causes:

  • The main symptom of an undescended testicle is not seeing or feeling the testicle in the scrotum.
  • Testicles form in an unborn baby’s lower belly and typically move down into the scrotum during the last few months of pregnancy.
  • If the process of descent stops or is delayed, the testicle remains undescended.
  • Most often, it’s just one testicle that is affected, but sometimes both testicles may be undescended.
  • Premature babies are more likely to have undescended testicles than full-term infants

Risk Factors

  • Premature birth
  • Low birth weight
  • Family history of undescended testis


  • Reduced fertility
  • Increased risk of testicular cancer
  • Testicular torsion (twisting of the testicle)
  • Inguinal hernia


  • Physical examination
  • Imaging tests like ultrasound


  • Hormonal therapy to stimulate testicular descent (rarely used)
  • Orchidopexy (surgery) to bring the testis into the scrotum
  • Surgery is usually recommended before the age of 1 year to prevent complications and improve fertility outcomes.

Long-Term Outlook

  • Successful treatment with surgery leads to normal testicular function in most cases.
  • Regular follow-up with a healthcare provider is essential to monitor for complications and ensure normal testicular development.

Undescended testis is a common condition that requires early diagnosis and appropriate treatment to prevent complications and improve long-term outcomes. If you suspect your child has an undescended testis, consult a healthcare provider for proper evaluation and management.
