Genital Pain - Swelling Connections

Below you will find various relationships to the concept of and potential clinical approaches for genital pain - swelling. It is critical to appreciate that in Chinese Medicine (and most related systems), treatment for "genital pain - swelling" is rarely designed with the resulting "genital pain - swelling" exclusively in mind.

For non-practitioners, we recommend reading treating the "cause" and not the "symptoms" for more on the overall approach and the importance of the TCM diagnostic system in formulating treatment approaches.
