What is cryptorchidism

Cryptorchidism is a congenital defect suffered by males from birth, where the testicles do not descend into the scrotal sac. Cryptorchidism can occur in one or both testicles.

On many occasions, men undergo surgery to correct the descent of the testicles and prevent their reproductive function from being impaired.

Cryptorchidism occurs in 3 to 9% of full-term newborns and approximately 30% of premature infants. Normally, the testicle or testicles are located along the path they should follow to descend into the scrotum. In addition, the most common location of testicles that do not descend correctly is the groin area.
