Pain that originates in your lower abdomen may be caused by many conditions or diseases, and some of them are serious medical abnormalities. If it’s a circulation problem, you may have pelvic congestion syndrome (PCS). If it’s hormone-related, you may have fibroids on your uterine wall or something even worse. It’s always a good decision to see a pelvic pain doctor whenever you suffer from abdominal or pelvic pain. In Brooklyn, your best alternative is Dr. George Bolotin, an expert in Interventional Radiology. He can diagnose and treat your condition, often in the same day. Call for an appointment for acute or chronic pelvic pain treatment.
Several diseases and conditions can cause pelvic pain. In fact, chronic pelvic pain — ongoing pain that lasts longer than three months — can result from a combination of conditions. Digestive, urinary or reproductive problems may be responsible for your pelvic pain, but recent research indicates that at least some chronic pelvic pain results from the muscles in the pelvic floor that keep your organs in place.
Uterine fibroids are another common cause of pelvic pain in women. Fibroids are non-cancerous tumors that grow on your uterine wall during your child-bearing years. Although they’re often so small, they’re invisible to the naked eye, they can grow large enough to stress adjacent organs or cause pain in the pelvic area.
Most pelvic pain is light and tolerable, just as most fibroids are small and unobtrusive. If you’re experiencing pelvic pain, visit a pelvic pain doctor before it becomes chronic.
