is the condition in which the testes fail to descend by twelve month
s of age, and languish in the abdomen, or inguinal canal
. This increases the risk of testicular cancer
and leads to infertility
Pseudocryptorchidism is where this simply appears to be the the case. Sometimes, the testicles can re taken back into the body by a contraction (which is uncontrolled) of the cremasteric muscle of the suspensory cord. Unlike cryptorchidism this does not need surgical treatment, and occurences should become less frequent with age.
