The perineum refers to the area between the anus and genitals, extending from either the vaginal opening to the anus or the scrotum to the anus. Injuries, urinary tract issues, infections, and other conditions can cause perineum pain. A urinary tract infection UTI is an infection in any part of your urinary system, such as your urethra, bladder, ureters, or kidneys. Most UTIs affect the lower urinary tract, which includes your bladder and urethra. UTIs tend to be more common in women, but anyone can get them.

Prostatitis - Men's Health Issues - MSD Manual Consumer Version
Prostatitis is pain and swelling, inflammation, or both of the prostate gland. Men feel a frequent, urgent need to urinate, and urination, erection, ejaculation, and defecation may be painful. Symptoms of prostatitis, regardless of the cause, may be treated with warm sitz baths, relaxation techniques, and drugs. Prostatitis usually develops for unknown reasons. Prostatitis can result from a bacterial infection that spreads to the prostate from the urinary tract or from bacteria in the bloodstream. Bacterial infections may develop slowly and tend to recur chronic bacterial prostatitis or develop rapidly acute bacterial prostatitis. Some people develop chronic prostatitis in the absence of bacterial infection.
Perineal Injury in Males
Median raphe cysts are a rare, congenital entity. We present a case and review the literature in respect to a year-old man with a non-visible, painless midline swelling in the anterior perineum initially thought to be a liposarcoma. Subsequent histopathological examination confirmed a median raphe cyst. Median raphe cysts are a rare congenital condition and, although eminently amenable to surgical excision, can cause concern to the patient as well as to the attending physician due to their clinical presentation and differential diagnoses. First described by Mermet 1 , the condition has occasionally appeared in journals and paediatric reference texts but not in adult urology textbooks despite its potential extension into the scrotal area.
Perineal injury is an injury to the perineum, the part of the body between the anus and the genitals, or sex organs. In males, the perineum is the area between the anus and the scrotum, the external pouch of skin that holds the testicles. Injuries to the perineum can happen suddenly, as in an accident, or gradually, as the result of an activity that persistently puts pressure on the perineum. Sudden damage to the perineum is called an acute injury, while gradual damage is called a chronic injury.
