Pet owners sometimes don't become aware of this issue until a complication arises. Particularly when older dogs who have been adopted and are presumed to have undergone neutering. Testicular torsion, in which one or both testicles are twisted on the connective tissue, is a potential problem. This is a severe ailment that hurts the dog greatly. Even worse, testicular cancer in dogs with cryptorchidism is 10 times more likely to occur. Why? Because the testicles are stuck in the inguinal canal or abdomen rather than descending and are exposed to a warmer environment than the scrotum, which is located outside the body.
