    I have a male friend who is 74. He has had a negative colonoscopy, sigmoidoscopy, bloodwork & abdominal CT, but continues to feel the following symptoms for a month's duration: polyuria and urinary frequency, relieved by sitting down, worse when ambulating; cramping in lower abdomen when raising LEs above heart-level, accompanied by a perception of the need to evacuate his bowels, but with no result; testicular pain when sitting, when legs are crossed, and when lying down on his back. Any ideas on what he should ask about next?

    Could be prostate infection, prostate obstruction from noncancerous enlargement or even prostate cancer, as well as kidney stone, lower ureteral stone, scar or cancer, testicular problems - infection, epididymitis, tumor, seminal vesiculitis to name a few. He should be seen by a urologist for an evaluation. Plus could be from diabetes, or other non pelvic issues.
