During your visit with Dr. Tassone, he’ll ask you where your pain is coming from, as well as what it feels like. The more thorough descriptions you provide, the easier it’ll be for him to diagnose and treat you. Also remember to tell him what triggers your pain, or what makes it better.

You may need surgery if you have a growth or cyst that needs to be removed. But rest assured, Dr. Tassone will do everything he can to get to the root of your pelvic pain, so he can provide the proper treatment.
