Abstract

Pain occurs in the male genitourinary organs as for any organ system in response to traumatic, infectious, or irritative stimuli. A knowledge and understanding of chronic genitourinary pain can be of great utility to practicing nonurologists. This article provides insight into the medical and surgical management of subacute and chronic pelvic, inguinal, and scrotal pain. The pathophysiology, diagnosis, and medical and surgical treatment options of each are discussed.
