A dear friend is experiencing severe pain in his penis on a daily basis. This has been going on for over a year and he cannot get any relief. He has been to 4 different urologists, spent thousands of dollars, and had dozens of different procedures. Everything has turned up "normal". The pain is becoming hard to bear and nobody can seem to help him return to a normal life. If you have experienced something like this or know of any explanation for it, please contact me. His procedures thus far have included:
STD tests
digital rectal exams
penile scope procedure
antibiotic therapy
multiple X-rays
herbal supplements

Please help.

  • What sort of X-rays has he had? Was his lumbar spine and sacral spine examined? Also pain referred from the back may cause these symptoms even if X-rays are normalHow old is he? Sometimes pain comes from the brain pain centers especially in older people.Poor blood flow to the area can also cause pain especially in older people.Skin diseases can also cause pain.I suggest he talk to an internist or family practitioner to check these things out further if the urologists have not been helpful.Good luck.
