It is necessary to find out where is the another testes. Because the risk of infertility increases with age, most doctors advise treatment for undescended testicle by the time the boy is 1 year old and no later than age 2. Treatment may not reduce the risk for testicular cancer, but it makes the cancer easier for you or your doctor to find if it does develop.
If the testicle can be felt in the groin, orchiopexy will probably be done through a small incision in the groin or assisted by laparoscopy. The laparoscopic surgeon will free the testicle from its location in the abdomen and maneuver it into the scrotum. Children often go home later that day or the next morning.
If the testicle cannot be felt in the groin as occurs in about one out of five boys with a undescended testicle, the testicle may be in the abdomen, or may simply be absent. Further exploration and diagnostic laparoscopy is necessary to make sure a testicle is not left in the abdomen in order to permit the testicle to function properly and to reduce the risk of cancer developing undetected in that testicle.
