Q.

Boys development

At what age are the testes suppose to " decent" . My son is 6 years old and I am a bit worried as I heard it should be around this age, but can' t find anything to confirm or I am I worrying about nothing?

Your son's testes should be in his scrotum from birth and certainly by the age of 2 years. If you cannot confirm that your son's testes have descended into his scrotum, he needs to be seen by his doctor. This is known as undescended testes and will need to be treated surgically.
