Having a bit of soreness in my testicles and my lower abdomen. Cdould this be caused from driving for too long?

Prostatitis likely: Your symptoms fit the profile of prostatitis. When the prostate swells, which being seated for long time can cause, it triggers irritation to bladder. Urgency/frequency of urination and a variable stream are the norm. Pain typically involves the tip of the penis, groins, testicles, low back and perineum. Treatment with antibiotics, nsaids, prostate relaxation and bladder calming meds can fix it. ...Read more
