Erectile Dysfunction (ED)

19 and testicals haven`t dropped

07/14/2008

Question:

I have a friend who is 19 years old and his testicles haven`t dropped yet. He is scared to go to the doctor. Are there any pills to take or what advice can I give him to help him? What would it help him with if he got his problem fixed (besides sexually).

Answer:

It is important for your friend to be examined by a urologist. If the testicles are truly undescended, this would be important to be addressed as there is a slightly higher incidence of a tumor developing in an undescended testicle.
