abstract

  • Cryptorchidism is one of the most common congenital anomalies in males, characterized by inability to palpate the testicle in the expected normal anatomical position (i.e., within its respective hemi-scrotum). It represents an abnormality of testicular descent and development associated with long-term concerns, including infertility, hypogonadism, and development of neoplasms.
