(A) Penile pain is a broad term with many different possible underlying etiologic factors, most of which can be readily identified by careful history and physical examination. On history, medical co-morbidities such as diabetes mellitus, psychiatric disorder, and chronic pain disorders are established. Patients should be queried regarding location, onset, quality, duration, and intensity of pain.
