In brief: Exact causes unknown

There appear to be many factors:- can be genetic ( e.
g. Father may have had same), hormonal ( mother taking estrogens, birth control pill or child conceived by ivf, meat sources fed estrogens), prematurity (small premature babies have higher incidence), environmental factors can affect hormones as can nerve activity from the ileo-inguinal nerve.
