For 4 years I have suffered from symptoms consistent with those described by those who suffer from Chronic Prostatitis and Pudendal Neuralgia. I have even been diagnosed with those disorders although not to the extent that I felt satisfied with pursuing medical procedures.

I was recently diagnosed with a Labral Hip Tear - the Orthopaedist who diagnosed me stated that most if not all of my symptoms could be attributed to a labral hip tear:
• burning in testes
• burning when I sit
• back of glute and genital pain
• SI Joint pain
• tip of penis pain
• spreading burning after long periods of sitting

I am very very concerned that there are many men and women who need to have this examined before pursing treatment for prostatitis or pudendal neuralgia.

If you are an active person who suddenly started having groin pain - instead of accepting the Chronic Prostatitis diagnosis - have your hip checked out - it could be a labral tear. Dr. Meyers in Phili.

  • Thank you for sharing your experience. I have often wondered whether the pain did not come from my hip versus from my pelvis. Could you kindly tell me what kind of test allows to see the Labral Hip tear? Also what is the treatment?AFPainfree:confused:For 4 years I have suffered from symptoms consistent with those described by those who suffer from Chronic Prostatitis and Pudendal Neuralgia.

There is a physical exam that includes the fabre test that should hurt if you have one. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2697339/ I went to phili to see Dr. Meyers and he did a dye injection with an MRI, but you could get a 3T MRI if you can find an Orthopedist who knows the protocol to order. In MD & VA you can go to Dr. Wolff or Dr. Scopp, or Dr. Carrino at JHU for the MRI.
