Prostate Cancer

Stabbing Prostate Pain

04/29/2008

Question:

At random times, ever since I was 12, I get stabbing pains in my prostate. It comes on suddenly and is gone just as quick. I would catogorize the pain as a 10. It can happen more than once in a day or once every couple months. I haven`t found any other guy that has ever experienced this. What is it?

Answer:

I can not tell you what that is, but it may be worth seeing a Urologist to evaluate your symptoms. It certainly could be prostatitis, but you would need to see your doctor to be evaluated.
