Erm, yeah. Are they really that common? I have one, but can't really pluck up the courage to go to the docs and get something done about it. No idea what can be done either really?

Its definately 'there', just not down there :rolleyes: About the best way to put it really!

How has it gone so long? I thought they usually correct this after 1 year?? If they did notice it at birth, which they should have, it should've been sorted out yonks ago...

Just go to the doctors - they see far worse every day.

I have no idea either. I had a hernia when i was born, maybe that was something to do with it?

Absolutely.

If you do genuinely have an undescended testicle, then you need to make an appointment with your GP.

Yes mate, this will become more of a problem as you get older as if it does drop it will give you a hernia. I had a hernia operation when I was 21 and was told that I must have had a late descending testicle (ie around when i was 3), because it left a small rupture which herniated later on. See the doctor, you aren't the first man who's ******* hasn't dropped.

As somebody with Phimosis (unretractable foreskin) I can relate to the embarassment of approaching a doctor - but I in fact will have no problem when I see the doctor soon when I compare the implications to the outcome of one visit to the doctors, which you should always keep in mind. Although I will undoubtedly ask for a male doctor for examination :p:

indeed it is often a tricky subject to deal with.

phimosis is a different matter though. often it isnt really a "problem" as such. many people probably have no troubles and dont even realise they have a condition - especially if it causes them no pain and doesnt impact on their daily functions. guess it depends on the individual and their circumstances

Yes, this is like my case, I have no side effects - I didn't even know about the concept of retracting the foreskin or that I had a foreskin until 17 years old, and I found that there was no apprarent "skin" to pull away (most men who don't retract their foreskin by 16 can't normally retract it easily afterwards anyway) although I will go to the doctor just to be safe, since it is a risk factor in penile cancer.

if it isnt causing you hassle what do you think the doc will say?

If he has a phimosis (asymptomatic or not) - the GP will refer him to a Urologist with the view to having a circumcision.

Yeah definately go and see a doctor... My brother had this and just had a simple op to sort it out, don't be embarrassed it's just a body part the same as an arm etc... think about females who have to have a smear test every three years!!!!

Take Care

I'm really confused. I don't have one but when I'm masturbating it sometimes sinks into my body but then comes out again and it's fine. Is that normal!? It doesn't happen too often either.

That's perfectly normal - it's part of the process of the contracting of muscles that results in an orgasm....lol I don't like explaining things scientifically very often... :p:
