A lot of adults in this century, underwent surgery as children way back in 1980’s and 1990’s and some of them did not get good results even after multiple hypospadias surgeries due to complications. Some of these people lost hope at a cure and did not pursue further surgery for failed hypospadias.

We found that incidence of undescended testis has increased to almost 5% and hypospadias 1/126 babies in India.
