Doctor

A:   Thank you for writing to us.

Are you not able to feel the testicle because there is a swelling present. If this is the case, then you need to see a Doctor to get surgical for it. To be on the safe side, I recommend that you see a Doctor. He/She should be able to diagnose why the testis is not palpable.

Hope this helps.
