Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I am a 29-year-old male unmarried. For more than one year, I feel pain in the anus like throbbing (pain like beating in the anus) and feeling huge pain four hours after masturbation. The pain continues for five minutes or 10 minutes and gradually reduce and stops. Pain rarely comes. Sometimes, without masturbation also but if I masturbate pain definitely comes. It starts at midnight or sometimes in the day. I always drink plenty of water. I never feel any pain or any problem in passing stools. I am having type-1 diabetic and taking insulin injection for the last 13 years. I am taking insulin three times and I have my diabetics in good control. I do not know what type of problem I have. Which type of treatment is required? I am afraid of what might happen if I enter into a marriage with this problem. Please help me.

Welcome to icliniq.com. Your symptoms could be related to a local infection or coccydynia. Coming to this point, I would recommend consulting with a surgeon for a physical exam and an ultrasound of the soft tissues in this region. A dynamic radiography is necessary to investigate for coccydynia, which can be treated by surgery.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
