Testicle that did not come down into the scrotum

In some children, one or both testicles have not entered the scrotum when the child is born. Occasionally the testicle descends into the scrotum itself during the first half of the year. For premature babies, it is quite common for testicles not to be present in the scrotum at birth. Sometimes the testicle needs to be moved with an operation.
