Testicles Sometimes One And Sometimes Two In Children?
I want to ask . My child is a testicle sometimes one or two. Pa is a hernia? Thank you before
Good afternoon, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. The condition of the testicles, sometimes one and sometimes two, is not a hernia condition. A hernia is a condition where there is an organ that enters an undue place, often in the form of an intestine. The condition of the intestine that enters the scrotum sac is called the scrotalis hernia, and this condition causes precisely there are additional lumps from the normal only two (left and right testicles), into three because of the intestine. So it does not actually decrease or make the testicles disappear.
If your child is 6 months old or younger, chances are that the condition he is experiencing is the UDT / Undescended testicle or testicles that have not come down. Usually only one of the two testicles descends and occurs in children born prematurely. This condition is still normal if it is less than 6 months old and if it still does not go down more than that, then the possibility of surgery must be performed.
Another possibility is an ectopic testis, where the testis actually exists but is 'stored' in another part. Other conditions can also be testicular agenesis, or testes that are not formed at all. In the case of your child, what needs to be re-confirmed is actually his age, did there ever have been a time when there were always two testes, and whether when there was only one, it really wasn't there or you just couldn't feel it. We suggest that you check your child with a pediatrician or pediatric surgeon for further examination. Meanwhile, there is nothing you can do independently, so it is important for you to get your child checked immediately. So, hopefully answering your question.
