Causes for Concern
Just as we mentioned in the previous chapter dealing with a woman's body, it's important to be alert for anything that may seem off with the private areas of your body. Anything that just doesn't look or feel right warrants your attention. This would include any rashes, sores, tender spots, or areas that suddenly become painful. Cysts or lumps also need to be taken seriously. If urination or sexually activity suddenly becomes painful or uncomfortable, this can also be a warning sign that something may be amiss. Don't panic right away — many of these things can be totally normal and harmless, or easily treated. However, if it is something potential serious, the sooner you consult your doctor or seek treatment, the better off you will be.
A sudden or drastic change in libido can also sometimes be a symptom of a medical problem, so this is something you should pay attention to, as well.
