We understand this difficult, debilitating problem. You may have been treated with antibiotics and anti-inflammatory medication and yet still have pain. We offer a second opinion on this difficult to diagnose and treat problem, and we will quickly continue to work to eliminate your pain.
Pain most likely will result from several conditions such as incompletely treated infections, nerve irritation, genital duct obstruction, inflammation of the prostate, referred pain or abnormal anatomy such as varicoceles or hydroceles.
Common reasons for genital pain are the presence of urethral strictures, which is scar tissue, resistant bacteria, abacterial prostatitis or an enlarged obstructing prostate.
A less frequent but severe cause of bladder pain is bladder cancer. The critical next steps bladder cancer patients and their physicians must take include prostate secretion cultures, flexible cystoscopies (scope examination of the bladder), urine cytologies (pathologist looks at urine for cancer cells) and both medical and surgical treatment of an obstructing prostate and stricture. Many of these procedures can be performed within the ManCenters office, saving the patient money and enhancing convenience.
We offer medical management and surgical management for testicular pain. Our medical management will be an extensive array of different antibiotics and anti-inflammatory medication.
Our surgical management will be microsurgical denervation of the cord, microsurgical varicocele repair, surgical excision of painful epididymal lesions, and surgical treatment of urethral obstruction.
