Multicystic Dysplastic Kidney (MCDK)

A condition that results from the malformation of the kidney during fetal development, consisting of irregular cysts of varying sizes that resemble a bunch of grapes.

Neurogenic Bladder

A complex condition in which the nerves and muscles of the bladder can’t work together, preventing the bladder and sphincter muscles from functioning properly.

Pediatric Hernias

A protrusion of tissue or an organ through an opening or weakness in the muscle wall that usually contains it. Infants can be born with them.

Penile Skin Bridge - Penile Adhesions

Can result from a procedure such as circumcision if the skin around the head of the penis is not retracted during healing, but can also occur in uncircumcised young boys.

Posterior Urethral Valves

Abnormal valves that prevent the normal release of urine, causing the kidneys and collecting systems to become overfilled and expanded.

Prune Belly Syndrome

Also called Eagle-Barrett syndrome or Obrinsky syndrome, characterized by poor development of abdominal muscles, undescended testicles, and urinary tract problems.

Retractile Testes

A testicle that moves in and out of the scrotum, instead of resting in the scrotum at all times.

Spermatocele (Epididymal Cyst)

A small, harmless lump that occurs on top of one of the testes inside the scrotum. It occurs in the epididymis, the thin tube that connects the testis with the vas deferens.

Spina Bifida

A spinal column defect occurring in three forms: spina bifida occulta, which has no effect on function; meningocele; and myelomeningocele, the most serious kind.

Testicular Torsion

A medical emergency in which a boy’s testicle twists and is deprived of its blood supply; emergency surgery will usually be needed to save the testicle.

Testicular Tumors - Testicular Cancer

A lump or swelling in either testicle or pain or discomfort in a testicle or the scrotum is not always cancer, but an evaluation should be made by a medical professional.
