Retractile testicles in 7 yo
Looking for some experience/advice. My son's testicles descended normally after birth... out of no where, about 2 months ago, they moved up into the groin and have STAYED there. If you move them back, it is not painful for him but they do not stay put- they jump back up.
I took him to a children's urologist today and he immediately suggested surgery. Now, I'm not one of those internet know it alls but I did find a few children's hospital's that talked about the condition and how a wait and see approach is also an option. I don't want to mess up so I'm looking for those with experience. I know the muscle that controls them is strong in boys and it lessens closer to puberty- well, he is 7 so he is not exactly at that stage yet. I'm thinking a 2nd opinion may be in order BUT all the doctor's I've run into automatically jump to surgery as a quick fix instead of letting body do its thing.
