In brief: Yes

Spinal stenosis is found on studies in 20% of the population by age 60 with symptoms ranging from none to a lot.
Pain into the legs due to stenosis is due to nerve compression & this can also occur in the perineal region & over the penis due to compression of the nerves that supply that region as well. Typically it is brought on by standing & walking & relieved by sitting or bending over.
