ABDOMINAL AND PELVIC PAIN
MAURICE K. CHUNG, MD, RPh
Chronic pelvic pain can has many causes, including ailments occurring in the pelvic region, such as endometriosis, and in the bladder, for instance interstitial cystitis. Symptoms may be similar, and more than one condition may occur at the same time. Chronic pelvic pain, therefore, should be considered a multi-organ disease and treated accordingly.
