Q.

Boy Aged 3

Hi Doc

My boy just turned 3 this year. I took him for chest examination, since I though he has chest problem. Then i spoken to the Dr GP about his testicles. there are bit small and the doctor said he cannot feel them. Is this normal. I have to see a paediatrian in August. what do you think might be the issue. Is it something I can worry about? What is the normal procedure on things like these? Is he going to be a normal man? Shall I prepare myself for worse?

Please share some light, I am worried.looking forward to hear from your doctor.

Thanks
Luh

Paediatrician

This is very common and is known as undescended testes. This is easily corrected by a paediatric surgeon if it thought to be necessary.
