I have numbness on the left side of my genital area. What is the cause, and how do I treat it?

I have numbness on the left side of my genital area.  What is the cause, and how do I treat it?

Depends: Could be neuropathy from diabetes, problem at 3rd sacral spinal root, a pelvic mass (benign or malignant), or other things. You "treat" this problem by identifying the cause and if possible removing it. Some causes can be "treated, " others (e.g. Diabetic pudendal neuropathy) can't. At your age, you need to be examined. What does your doctor say? ...Read more

I have pains in my pelvis close to my genital area on the left side. The pains are either, a burning sensation, numbness, or just a sharp, deep pain.

Get to a Urologist: Those problems could represent impingement of a nerve or richly-innervated structure in the groin. A urologist would be a good start to rule out bad things. While you're waiting for the appointment, you could read online how to do a male self-examination to exclude any anatomical abnormalities. Good luck, and feel better soon! ...Read more

I had an MRI 10 days after noticing leaking of urine  and strange feelings in the rectum that showed a mild central disc extrusion at L5-S1 without spinal cord compression. I have incontinence and numbness in the groin/genital area. What  is this?

Some directions: Young males, age 25, do NOT develop these problems from a mild disc issue at L5-S1, and you need a neurologist to evaluate you ASAP. There are many potential causes, including Multiple Sclerosis, Lyme disease, etc., and I cannot give you a direct answer so far based on above description. BUT do not delay, get this directly addressed!! ...Read more

Several things : Possibly going on including the possibility of a disc herniation compressing a large part of the nerves in the back that could be causing what is called a cauda equina syndrome which should be evaluated immediately &requires emergent surgery. Other possibilities could be in the diagnosis but you should go to your doctor or er immediately especially if noting any bladder or bowel issues. ...Read more

15 seconds what could this be?

Lying on it: That's a very short time to suffer - surprising that you even remembered it. But the position you were in may have been the cause. It does occur to me that the medications you take can interact w/ each other badly and each can cause muscle or joint pain alone. You may want to ask your provider if they are all needed and if the doses are right for you. Relax. ...Read more
