Yes: Newborns often have swollen genitals from mom's hormones and sometimes related to the trauma of coming through the birth canal. Older babies should not have swollen genitals. Suddenly swollen genitals in combination with fussiness or definite pain should be considered a medical emergency.

Your legwork: Finding a physician you are confident will listen/interact with you honestly will take your own legwork. Ask friends, schedule a non-exam consultation, or meet & great. With a little effort you can find a doc you are comfortable with & the rest should fall in line. Make a list of all your concerns before your initial exam so you don't forget any at the time.
