In brief: Yes

The same organisms that cause pid in women can cause make genital infections including urethritis (inflammation of the tube that drains urine from the bladder), otchitis (inflammation of the testicles) and prostatitis.
Because the male genitals are external these infections are usually easily and quickly diagnosed.
