    testicular pain and diverticulosis?
    An_243470 posted:
    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?
    Sheldon Marks, MD responded:
    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.
