Could groin pain be related to back pain in case of slipped discs?

Hello Dr - My husband aged 49, normal height and weight has had severe lower back pain since April 2011.An MRI revealed he has two slipped discs. Since then he has received 4 pain treatments in the form of injections from a pain medicine specialist. The latest injections he received last Fri and these were given at his L3,4,5. I believe the procedure is called CRFC PRFC. Can you tell me the meaning of this please? One of the pain treatments he received 3 months ago was called RACZ . Also, for the last few weeks my husband is feeling pain in his penis. He has had a few sting-like pains in his groin and is wondering if this penile shaft pain is coming from his groin pain and also if this might be resulting from his back pain ? Thanks for reading my query. Looking forward to your reply, Paula.

It is very unlikely for that type of pain to be caused by spinal conditions. In my opinion, local penile problems should be considered. For this problem, it is necessary to consult a Urologist.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
