Similar with women: Bladder pain felt by a patient can be due to problems in the bladder or due to issues near the bladder. Infection in the bladder can cause pain. Cystitis (bladder inflammation) that is not from infection is another cause. Trauma causes pain. Distention (overfilling) hurts. Men can get prostate problems; women get pregnancy problems. A urine test and doctor's exam helps.
