Answer

The medical history should cover the following questions:

  • Has the testis ever been palpable in the scrotum?
  • Was the patient born prematurely?
  • Has the patient undergone prior inguinal surgery?
  • Is or was the patient's mother on a vegetarian diet? Was the patient fed soy formula during infancy?
  • What was the patient's birth weight?
