Pain Management
In brief: Medical work up firs
Before pelvic pain in men is treated, the source of the pelvic pain must be determined.
First your doctor should order a lumbar and pelvic mri. Second, i would order a psa level and perform a manuel prostate exam to determine if the prostate is enlarged. A would also order a vdrl. A would take an extensive history from the patient, ask if he has any he std's . If negative then refer to urologi.
