An undescended testis is one that fails to complete its descent from the abdomen into the scrotum before birth, and are more common in premature infants. Most undescended testes will descend into the scrotum during the first year of life. If the testis fails to descend on its own, the child may be treated with hormone injections to make the testis descend. If that is unsuccessful, he will need to have a surgical procedure, called orchiopexy, to bring the testis into the scrotum.
