My little guy is 18 months and in the last 2 days I've noticed that his testes are not in his scrotal sac. Even after having a warm bath they have not descended. This is unusual for him- Should I be going straight to a doctor for this or just watch to see what happens? Thanks for any input! And I'm sorry if this is the wrong place to post....I'm not sure where else I should be posting. Take Care!

DS2 is over 2 years old and his seem to go up and down. The ped pointed it out but she isn't concerned about it.

DS's are up and down too. I wouldn't worry too much. Sometimes I can push on his fat pad and they will come back down into the sac.

As of 20 mins ago they were back down so I guess I'm worrying for no reason! Thanks again for the input! It makes me feel much better! Julie

They go up and down naturally with temperature, in order to keep sperm "good". This is why you occasionally hear that a doctor recommends a guy wear boxers instead of briefs or breathable clothing to help with fertility. Gotta keep those sperm the right temperature! There is also a funny reflex - if you lightly run your finger tip on the inside of a male's thigh couple of inches down from his testes you can actually watch the the testicle ascend.
