Answer

Genitourinary pain will most commonly will be in the perineum (roughly 63%), testicles, suprapubic area, and penis (especially the penile tip), but can also include the groins, rectum, lower abdomen, or low back. Pain may also occur or increase during urination or ejaculation. Neuropathic pain can also contribute to symptoms.
