  Retractile testicle: Complications - MayoClinic.com
In approximately 30 percent to 50 percent of boys with a retractile testicle, the testicle permanently retracts up into the groin, referred to as an acquired undescended testicle.
A retractile testicle that becomes permanently retracted (an undescended testicle) and remains untreated may affect a boy's future fertility.
The risk of a testicular tumor is 35 times greater in males with an undescended testicle — a testicle that remains in the groin instead of moving down into the scrotum.

 InteliHealth:
An undescended testicle increases the risk of infertility (not being able to have children), testicular cancer, hernias and testicular torsion (twisting).
This is thought to occur when, for unknown reasons, the spermatic cord attached to the testicle does not grow as quickly as the rest of the child does.
After treatment, 50% to 65% of males with 2 undescended testicles are fertile, and 85% with a single undescended testicle are fertile.

The testicles (also called testes or gonads) are the male sex glands.
The testicles are located outside the body because sperm develop best at a temperature several degrees cooler than normal internal body temperature.
The leydig cells distributed throughout the testicle are the body's main source of testosterone.
