Pain in Left Lower Abdomen

06/30/2009

Question:

I`m experiencing pain in my left lower abdomen, a couple of inches below and to the left of the belly button. It`s not a constant pain, but noticable after erection and after sexual intercouse. My left testicle is sensitive to the touch, which also produces a mild pain in lower addomen, left side. I thought it might be related to irritable bowel syndrome, but not sure. Any answers for this are very much appreciated.

Answer:

It is difficult to diagnose the etiology of the pain you are describing. I would suggest that you be seen and evaluated by your doctor.
