Pelvic Pain in Men
Chronic pelvic pain in men is a real health issue. However, unlike male urinary infections, the lack of findings or evaluation is frustrating to both patient and doctor and may cause men to avoid seeking further opinions. Fortunately, our urologists understand that chronic pelvic pain is a real issue that can impact quality of life.
While chronic pelvic pain is more prevalent in women, men experience these issues 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 may arise in specific organs such as the prostate, genitals, bladder, or bowel. It can also be caused by pelvic nerve or muscle problems. The starting point for evaluation of male pelvic pain should be a urologist.
