Rape exam on a male?

My main character has had to report what is effectively a rape (fantasy setting, but this crime is considered equivilent, so anything that would apply to that applies to this.) And he's been sent for a medical exam.

My question is - would it be a male doctor because he's a man, and thus it's possibly less embarassing to be dealt with by a member of your own sex? Or would it be a female doctors because he was attacked by a man, and therefore being touched by a woman would be less scary for him?

The story is set in the North of England.
