I know many doctors recommend the removal of an undescended testicle in adult men.
In my opinion, this slash and burn technique is a little bit harsh.
The argument is, that men with an undescended testis have an increased risk of testicular cancer. That seems to make sense, until you take a good look at the numbers.
Take a thousand men suffering this condition, and follow them for life.
Once they've checked out, go back and look and see how many developed testicular cancer.
Care to guess how many?
A grand total of 3!
Yup, that's only 3 out of every one thousand men.
That's higher normal, but it's not like these guys are dropping like flies.
Remember, I'm not a doctor, and everything I express here are my opinions, and my opinions only.
I'm going to give you another one right now.
If I had an undescended testicle, I'd keep it.
I'd know that it wasn't going to produce bucket loads of sperm, or pump out a steady stream of testosterone, but I'd keep it anyway.
What I would do is undergo orchidopexy surgery, and have the testicle placed back into the scrotum.
That way I could do self exams, and keep tabs on it.
If I ever did develop a tumor, at that point I'd have it removed.
Based on the numbers, the chances are good that would never happen.
If you have an undescended testicle, here's what I recommend you do to keep your other testicle healthy and productive.
Wear a Blakoe/Ball Zinger Ring
This galvanic ring, which is worn around the penis and testicles, produces a small amount of electrical current, which stimulates the leydig cells in the testicles to produce more testosterone, and other male androgen's.
I know it sounds strange and unusual, but this device really works. The vast majority of my regular site visitors own and use this product on a daily basis.
The original Blakoe Ring is manufactured in Europe, and sells in the $150.00 range.
Recently, I located another manufacturer right here in the US.
He builds a better device, and sells it at a fraction of the price of the original Blakoe.
