    Basically, if you're getting a really thorough physical, they examine EVERYTHING including your genitals. That's the part that some guys dont like, although if you get enough of them, you get used to it. I play sports and get lots of physicals so I dont mind going for them.

    Depending on your doctor you might have to get totall naked (like my doctor does) or you might be able to keep your underwear on and just pull them down for the genital examination. Some doctors give you a gown to wear, some don't.

    Some doctors like having parents go in with their kids. I still go to a pediatrician and he prefers if your mom or dad is with you so one of them always comes with me, usually my mom. It's only bad if you psych yourself out about it. E-mail me if you want more info.

    When my son was a teenager and had sports exams, there was always a little bit where he needed to be completely undressed. His doctor checked for testicular cancer, hernias (I think) and other abnormalities that involved his genital area. This is the portion of the exam that I call "turn your head and cough" because that is what the doctor says while he holds on to the boy/man's testicles.

    During that part of the exam, I excused myself from the room. During the rest, I was present so that I could hear the questions and answers and help provide more information if needed.

    They check your height, weight, Blood Pressure, Vision. Then the doctor comes in and talks to you about your growth chart.
