The problem of undescended testis is understood by physical examinations. Diagnosis can be made as a result of examinations performed by specialized urologists. As a result of the investigations, those who have undescended testis symptoms should seek medical advice. If the testes are not present in babies’ bags or if only one testis is present, this is among the symptoms of undescended testis. It is understood that there are signs of undescended testis due to physical examinations performed very carefully. The descent of the testes into the bag should be realized during the pregnancy period. In some cases, the descent can continue after birth. Parents should be careful and sensitive about this issue. When confronted with a suspicious situation, they should take their children to the urology doctors for physical examination.
It is possible for children with undescended testis to be treated. When the infants come to the 6-month period, the treatment process should be initiated. It is expected that the baby will be 6 months old for the treatment of undescended testis unless there is an emergency. It is important that babies are given this treatment until the age of 1 year. If the treatment is delayed and retarded after one year, the immediate treatment process should be initiated. Early diagnosis and treatment are very important for the absence of structural defects. Locating the testis is the first step in the treatment of undescended testis. Blood tests and radiological tests are performed to check whether the testicle is in place. Between 6 months and 1-year-old, surgery is appropriate.
