MANday: What Should I Do When I Have Pains Below the Belt?

One of the most common things that we see patients for is what we call genital pain. Whether that is pain with urination, testicular pain or penile pain. When you start to experience pain, the next course of action is usually internet research. What I would urge you to do is to allow someone who specializes in this area of expertise to provide you with medically sound advice, specific to your needs. 

One of the most valuable tools that a medical provider has is a history and physical which is of paramount importance.  Our evaluation can determine if your pain is coming from the bladder, urethra, prostate, inguinal canal, spermatic cord, or the testicle and can help guide our recommendations. The next step of our evaluation could include external or internal imaging and laboratory data. The search for the answer requires the skills of a urological team. Genital pain requires investigation and intervention. 

Don’t take the risk of letting it go on. The pain could be a warning sign to something that has future implications. Not all pain is dangerous or cancerous but let us make that determination with an evaluation at The Y Factor. Women have OB-GYNs, Men have The Y Factor!
