Pelvic Pain in Men

Chronic pelvic pain in men is a real health issue, yet many men are either embarrassed to talk about their issues with a doctor, or don’t even know where to turn to for help. Fortunately, our urologists understand that chronic pelvic pain in men is a real issue – one that can seriously impact a man’s quality of life.

While chronic pelvic pain is more prevelent in women, men experience issues with chronic pain as well. Pain can be caused by a number of underlying medical conditions, which can be diagnosed and treated by the urology specialists at Urology Associates.

Pelvic pain in men can be oragn specific (related to the prostate) or even be caused by muscle spasms in the pelvic floor muscles. A urologist is the best doctor to turn to for help with chronic pain issues as they are specially trained in the urologic conditions that can cause chronic pelvic pain in men.
