In brief: History & physical.

The appointment will consist of a detailed history and physical exam. The exam will focus on the abdomen and genitals.
In men, inspection of the penis, palpation of the testicles, and a hernia check will occur. If indicated, the prostate is checked by a digital rectal exam. In women, there may be a pelvic exam if indicated. A urine sample may be taken and checked. Urine flow can be analyzed.
