    Undescended testicle, surgery at 6, now 17 and still undescended

    I was born with an undescended testicle. I had surgery done when I was 6 years old and afterwards the testicle still wasn't visible in the scrotum and they told me it would "come down over time". Well I'm 17 now and it still isn't in the scrotum. I think I can feel it when I press under the surgery scar. So what should I do?

    You need to see a urologist to discuss what to do. An undescended testicle should not stay in the abdomen. You may need surgery again to bring it down successfully.
