I was suffering from Scrotum pain and groin pain for two months met about 5 Dr's with different reports they asked but all came that am normal nobody did a correct diagnosis and never cared about the pain. Finally met Dr. Vijayaraghavan, he listened to my problems clearly and ordered for more Advanced medical reports to rule out complications and it was early cystitis followed by muscle pain . He gave proper medications and moreover he gave me a proper advice in lifestyle changes along with food habits followed by some exercises.
