    when my son was about 1 our doctor thought my son had undescended testicles and sent us to a specialist. The specialist said he was find and was able to find his testicles with no problem. We haven't really paid much attention to it but recently my husband think that his testicles might have went back up and at time you can defintely see that his testicles is up. So I was thinking that maybe he has retractable testicles. If anyone has any ideas let me know.

    Is there really such a thing as retractable testicles? (other than what is normal for every man because they are suspended by ligaments which allow them to descend or retract towards the body according to temperature changes)

    I had a friend whose son had undescended testicles. When he gained a little weight (i.e, just before a growth spurt), his testicles seemed to "show" a bit, but after he shot up in height, they seemed to disappear again. When he entered puberty, they came down fully, and he didn't have that problem again. I'm not sure if there really is such a thing as true retractable testicles, but, maybe, talk to his doctor again about it.
