    There are a few armies that don't allow it. I think even Indian Army doesn't allow for such problems.

    I'd recommend you go to a Military Hospital, and talk to someone there. They will not stop you from entering a Military hospital provided you have an appointment. Which city are you from?

    I don't think it'll pose any problem.

    ^ Sir afaik, he can join the army. Having one testicle removed doesnt affect one's health in any way.

    Indian Army's medical criteria is very strict. They even check for the depression in your arm pits. If its not enough, you're out.
    They do require your testicles to be free from any problems. I know this for sure. I don't know if they allow a single testicle or not.

    ^ Sir having one testicle removed is not considered a problem. after surgery the other testicle becomes safer than before. and it doesnt affect normal life one bit.

    yes Army might still reject him as they have very strict rules. :smile:

    Brother, you can just follow the normal recruiting procedure. and tell them about it, try convincing.. i'm hopeful they wont reject.

    but if you ask me, i dont think you should even bother about it. just carry on with normal procedure.

    Actually he shouldn't even talk about it. He should never reveal anything about it. Let the doctor check him.
    There is no hope for convincing in Army recruitment, because even if the doctor okays him, he will have to go through another medical when he joins the NDA or IMA. If the doctor finds out a problem then, the previous doctor who okayed him earlier gets into some deep trouble. That is why it is so strict in the army.

    ^ but if he doesnt tell it i dont think there's any way Army doctor can find this :undecided:

    but i think even if he does, most probably he'd tell him not to talk about it and continue normally

    This is what is mentioned in medical fitness regarding ginitals. I will advise you to go through the normal procedure and let the army board decide. However, do not hide anything if it is required to be mentioned in the forms. Although, undescended testicles is very common, the army board will have to look into the reasons like if the removed testicle was hypoplastic or retracted. There are many complications that cannot be discussed here. Keep your medical rocords from the hospital where you had your testicle removed ready with you.

    testicals are checked physically so there is no chance of hiding.

    No. Flat foot is a strict no. No matter how fast you can run. These things are not stated online, but the medical criteria is a LONG list, available only with army doctors.
