odd question- undescended testes DeidreLC 1 child; Spotsylvania, Virginia 1086 posts

Okay. I feel weird asking this, but... I've been babysitting my friends 2 month old son. I can't help but notice that his testicles are huge, and clearly there. On to my point...



My 2 year old sons scrotum looks tight and empty. His pedi has never said anything about it. I don't think I've ever seen anything in his scrotum since he was born. It's really bothering me. How do you know if it's an undescended testicle/testes? Any signs other than not feeling anything?



Sorry about the weirdness.

normally they check for it at birth and then again at the 1 year check up. if your pedi didnt say anything about it I d assume he s fine

Do your son's testicles hang down while he's in the bath tub? If yes then he's fine :) if not you can bring it up to his pedi and see what they say.

No, they don't. Under his p***s just looks like a piece of wrinkly skin that is pulled tight. It's always looked Like this... I tried To feel when I wiped him, but I didn't feel anything. /:

The reason I asked about the tub is because his body temp will rise causing his testicles to hang lower so they should be much easier to see.
