Perineal burning - wosre when sitting
Hi. I'm a 36 year old male with an ache / burn in my perineum which is worse when sitting .(not high pain level, just ache), almost feels like a lump there when sitting but no lump when felt. I did have some ache in the testicles and groin but this has now largely gone.. could this be an infection like prostatitis?  If so , how long can this last?

I have no problem with urination (either starting or stopping) and no pain on ejaculation..No fever / temperature.. no blood in urine / semen.

I visited my doctor who thought prostate trouble unlikely but did not perform a rectal exam , just examined the perineum / testicle area. (found nothing untoward in testicles)

Can you help as to what this may be. I do play sport quite regularly , are there muscles / tendons in the perineum area that could be affected?  Or is this more likely infection?

I'd be grateful for your feedback.

Thank you.

If you have these symptoms with negative bacterial results, especially over a period of time, it could well be non bacterial prostatitis. It may be worth having a prostate massage (a pleasure and pain experience!) and prostate fluid analysis, so you can eliminate the possibility of a deep seated prostate infection of a resistant strain of bacteria that may not have responded to empirical (guess work) antibiotic treatment. if this again proves to be negative then non bacterial inflammation or an enlarged prostate gland (very common, especially in older people) may well be the cause. At this point, hot baths, anti inflammatory pain killers and gabapentin for more acute episodes of pain should help. Also look around the internet for dietary solutions.
