Buenos Aires (Non-Illumination) – Another of the great doubts that exist in the field of infertility. According to Dr. Lilia Berenice, Lev Matias, gynecologist and obstetrician, cryptorchidism or testicles do not descend It occurs in about 3% of all births, as well as in 1% of children over 3 months.
This disorder, which literally means "hidden testicle", refers to a testicle that did not reach the spot of the scrotum, which is generally known as lack of origin of the testes, is detailed in the specialized portal SuMedico.com.
Risks due to uncertain testis or cryptorchidism
Untreated cryptorbidism can have adverse effects over time. There are more cases in premature infants and almost no specific symptoms, but the absence of testicles in the scrotal bag during the examination is obvious, the specialist explains.
In principle, the testicle drops spontaneously during the first year of life, but when this does not occur, surgical correction must be made to avoid problems of infertility in the future, as well as the development of testicular cancer.
In this respect, it is known that a patient with cryptorbidism in one testicle has a risk of infertility of 75%. If the problem is bilateral and the correctness of the disappearance of the testicles is corrected, the risk is 50%. In this sense, patients with uncertain testes are 7 to 10 times more likely to develop cancer in the testes than other populations.
Causes of cryptorbidism and infertility
The reasons for undeserved testicles are not quite clear, but genetic, endocrine and environmental factors are known to be involved. Men who have both uncertified testicles have up to 89% chance of having absent sperm in the ejaculate and infertility, explains Dr. Lev Makiyas.
For this reason, men who want to be parents who have long been trying to have complete tests to diagnose severe changes in semen production, such as Azoospermia, which is the absence of sperm in the ejaculate, and cryptorbidism and development risk cancer
One is the testis biopsy, through which the sperm is extracted directly from the epididymis, so that they fertilize the best egg in the laboratory, in order to achieve a dream to give birth to a baby at home with InTi-Fertilization.
