General Information on Retractile Testes
Retractile testes, also known as hypermobile, are a condition in which the testes descended, but move back and forth between the scrotum and the abdomen. Retractile testes do not lead to any other serious condition. In most cases, retractile testes dissipate by puberty and permanently move in to place in the scrotum. In other instances, the retractile testes permanently move in to the abdomen. When this occurs, the retractile testes is no longer referred to retractile testes, but is referred to as ascending testes. The cause of retractile testes is an overactive cremaster muscle that the testes rest on. When the cremaster muscle contracts, the testes are pulled up into the abdomen. When the testes move back and forth from the scrotum to the abdomen, there is typically no pain or any other form of discomfort. The testes typically move independent of each other and are not always located both in the abdomen or both in the scrotum.
Symptoms of Retractile Testes
Some of the symptoms of retractile testes may be:
Testes can be moved by hand up into the abdomen and do not immediately drop back into the scrotum
Testes spontaneously move up into the abdomen and remain
Testes spontaneously move down into the scrotum and remain
Treatments For Retractile Testes
The treatment for retractile testes typically not needed. In most cases of retractile testes, the testes move into place within the scrotum by puberty. If this does not happen and the testes still retract or are ascended, surgery may take place to move the testes into the scrotum. In some instances, surgery may not be required and the ascended or retracting testes can be moved into place through hormone therapy. The hormone therapy is an injection of human chorionic gonadotropin hormone twice per week for four weeks.
