Examination of the newborn: the key skills--Part 4 the testes.


Midwives are increasingly performing the examination of the newborn. In the final of this four-part series, we consider the importance of the examination of the testes in the screening process. The significance of history taking, knowledge of risk factors and the testes examination will be explored, along with referral pathways that the National Screening Committee requires, as will be highlighted. The impact of late detection and poor referral of undescended testes on the lives of children and adults will also be considered.
