Pain in the lower part of the stomach - male reasonsBernice Clark ▼ | Wednesday April 1, 2009 6:01PM ET
Some causes of pain situated in the lower part of the stomach are equal in both sexes. Pain in the spine, appendix inflammation, ileus, diverticulus, acute and chronic colon inflammation, aortic aneurysms, kidney tumours, cysts, and kidney stones may be some of the reasons for the pain in the lower part of the stomach in both sexes.
Men can feel pain above pubic bone in the middle lower part of the stomach. The pain sometimes spreads in the area where the colon ends and patient can feel coldness in feet.
With an ultrasound and a simple prostate examination the doctor may detect is the pain caused by prostate inflammation. Additional microbiological tests plus HPV test and/or test on Chlamydia infection will clarify the picture.
The treatment of chronic prostate inflammation lasts long and patient's partner must be healed too. Prostate inflammation most commonly appears in younger men. Considering age, in most cases the problems are connected with the place where the patient works, which means open and cold places or not heated room/office (building and industrial sites).
Beside prostate inflammation, a prostate enlargement causes pain above the pubic bone. The pain is followed by frequent urinating with weak flow (especially night urination which is followed by pain), and that mostly happens in men older than 50 years.
Prostate enlargement can be benign or malignant. Men around 50 years of age should do examination of at least urogenital system which includes kidneys, ureters, bladder, and urethra.
In younger men the pain may occur in, or around, one or both testicles. The pain can be brief, frequent and flashing. The pain is often reflexive as the side effect of sand or stones (mostly in urinary system), or as the side effect of appendix inflammation or inguinal hernia.
Daily feeling of permanent and bluntly pain in one of the testicle is more dangerous and it is connected with enlargement of a testicle.
With an ultrasound the doctor will detect is the pain caused by testicle's swelling (hydrocele), enlargement of the internal spermatic veins that drain the testicle (varicocele), or because of testicle tumor.
Testicle cancer most often develops in men from 15 to 35 years of age and it is necessary to detect it as soon as possible. Hydrocele and varicocele are not dangerous, but they can be disturbance for man's fertility.
Severe testicle pain that comes quickly can be a sign of twisted testicle. The pain usually appears after physical activity or sport and it appears most often in one testicle.
This condition requires immediate medical treatment to prevent the loss of the affected testicle. That problem urologist can solve manually if the patient comes soon after the problem appeared, or operational if the patient comes after few hours.
Inguinal hernia is frequent man's problem regardless of age. It can appear on both or one side of the lower part of the stomach, or develop after surgical operation. Inguinal hernia needs operation.
Blood in urine indicates inflammation processes in urinary system, stones in urinary system, complications of prostate cancer, or polyps (benign or malignant) in urinary bladder.
All those symptoms usually don't pass all by itself. Visit your doctor if you're noticed certain problems. ■
