Pelvic pain refers to pain that causes discomfort in the lower abdomen and groin area. Causes of this pain can be the result of a serious health condition, but this isn’t always the case.
For women, the reproductive system can lead to pelvic pain. Endometriosis, menstrual cramps, ovarian cysts, ovarian cancer, pelvic inflammatory disease, and uterine fibroids are just some of the issues that may cause pelvic pain.
For men and women, appendicitis, Crohn’s disease, colon cancer, diverticulitis, kidney stones, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), constipation, prostatitis, ulcerative colitis, hernia, and much more can be the cause.
If you have chronic pelvic pain, Dr. Tariq can discuss some treatment options with you.
