Daniel Spogen, Administrator, answered on behalf of Univ. of Nev. School of Medicine, Family MedicinePelvic pain in men is related to the prostate. The most common problem is benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH). Saw Palmetto is an herbal treatment that is known to decrease the prostate size and thereby decreasing prostate symptoms. Prostatitis (inflamation of the prostate) can have symptom reduction with saw palmetto, however, some prostatitis is related to bacterial infections and may need antibiotics.
