Help. My Friend Has Only One Testicle

Posted on the 27 July 2011 by Dr Gbenga Adebayo @dradebayo

Dr. Adebayo,

What can you say about males with one  testicle? I’ve heard stories on how a kidney can function well if  well-managed. Can one testicle function well as well?.  A guy has  been with one testicle for as long as he can remember. What are his chances?

Concerned Guy

Dear concerned guy.

Thank your for your question.

As you have rightly noted, when an organ occurs in pairs, survival and function can be preserved with only one. This is true for lungs, kidneys, ovaries and testicles. A man can have a normal sex life and father children with one testicle. There are a number of famous people who live(d) with only one testicle .Napoleon Bonaparte, Adolf Hitler, and Arnold Schwarzenegger are examples.

I would advise that your friend goes to see his doctor for a full evaluation. If the one testes he has is assessed to be normal, your friend should have entertain no fear. With his one testes, he can repopulate the world if necessary


Best regards

Dr Adebayo
