Do male genital problems run in families?

Some male genital problems may run in families, although many don't. Male genital problems are commonly caused by things like injury, infection, and sexually transmitted diseases, which obviously don't run in families. In some cases, genital problems may be caused by certain genetic conditions or cancers, which may be inherited. If you have a family history of testicular cancer, undescended testes, or other genetic issues, talk to your doctor about regular screening and other procedures that may help prevent those problems from becoming serious.
