Question: Whats the name of my testicle condition?

 londonguy - Fri Feb 03, 2006 3:26 pm

I'm too embarrased to ask my parents or my doctor what my condition is called, and I really want to know!! I think I have two undescended testicles but I don't know whether its just that or whether this is part of something else. Since about 11 i've had testosterone replacement treatment, tablets, injections and currently gel. I'm also infertile. Obviously when I started puberty I didn't develop as you would expect due to testosterone deficiency hence the testosterone replacement treatment. At 15 I had a prosthetic testcle implant and was due to have a second a few years ago but chose not as I didnt want to go through the surgery. I think thats all I can tell you. PLEASE can someone tell me what I have, its driving me crazy and I just want to know.
