why do they check down there?
iam_sam posted:
when someone is going to join a sport or sometimes a certain job, why do some doctors check the male's testicles and ask them to cough? what does this have to do with playing sports or a certain job?

anyone know the answer?

Hi iam_sam,

This test is used to check for hernias . A hernia could hinder you from performing certain aspects of your job or participating in sports, and is usually treated with surgery.

Hope this answers your question!
