He could be checking for lumps (testicular cancer). More commonly it's accompanied by the "turn your head and cough" in which case he's checking for hernia (your guts in the wrong places, essentially) he can tell by how it feels as you cough. If, however, you sensed anything sexual or abusive in nature, you should report him and find a new doctor.
He is checking for lumps, weight, and size. Also, for hardness. As you get older they soften up into almost nothing. (around 60)
