I hope someone can please help me understand my sons MRI results. He has been in severe pain since he was lifting weights about 3 months ago. Although his pain is not in the back , his doctor said it may be referred pain and its radiating to his testicles ,scrotum and groin area .
When he lays down in bed the pain increases. Its been very difficult to find a reason for the pain. He has been to many specialist but not until recently was an MRI ordered. Can you please explain what the results mean. Is it possible this may cause significant pain ?
Thanks so much , I appreciate all your help !
