See below: I think the words are pretty clear, it means tenderness above the pubic (frontal pelvic) bones. It is usually associated with urinary tract issues.

On/above bone?: Tenderness above the pubic bone relates generally to the bladder. If your pain is pressing the pubic bone more or less midline, you probably have some irritation or inflammation of the symphysis pubis. This is the equivalent of a joint for your pelvic bones. It's more common in women since they are subject to stretching these joints during pregnancy, trauma can cause this anyone.
