During development of the fetus, the testicles form in the abdomen close to the kidneys. They then descend through the inguinal rings into the scrotum. The failure of one or both testicles to complete this journey results in an intra-abdominal or inguinal cryptorchid. These testicles are usually sterile, but still produce testosterone.
