Have Pediatric Questions? Ask a Pediatrician.
Hello this is Dr. Stan and I will assist you with your question today. I am board certified and I have 40 years of patient experience. I am happy to help you. I'm sorry to hear that you son's testicles have not descended. There is no reason at this time to do any blood tests to determine his hormone levels. First because they will be low and not relevant at this stage in his life. He sounds healthy otherwise. When he is one, if the testes have not descended, then a relatively simple operative procedure can be done to bring them into his scrotum and he will be perfectly normal after that. I know you are concerned about his future manhood, but that will not be a problem going forward.
I am available to answer any additional questions you may have. Thank you for allowing me to provide assistance. I hope your medical problem(s) are resolved soon and you feel better. If you find the information I provided helpful, please rate me with 5-Stars. Thank you
I'm sorry for my late response, but a computer glitch prevented mr from responding until now. Your baby was not born without testicles, they haven't descended yet. If you son has a penis, he has testicles. To assure you, you can take him to a Urologist or back to his Pediatrician and request an Ultrasound of his pelvis to define the presence of testes.
I know your baby is good, how are you?
