One diagnosis of a burning sensation in the abdomen could be a peptic ulcer. Often pain presents in the centre of the abdomen and can travel further up the body or down to the navel. The pain is caused by the ulcer itself and by the stomach acids that irritate the ulcer when they come into contact with it.

When a peptic ulcer forms in the stomach it is called a gastric ulcer while in the small intestine it is a duodenal ulcer. Both of these forms can be referred to as peptic ulcer disease. A peptic ulcer is an open sore and, as stated, the most common symptom is a burning sensation in the centre of the abdomen.

     Perhaps a more fitting diagnosis could be a problem in the urinary system. The pain is specifically apparent in the pelvic area. It could point to several different conditions, such as cystitis, inflammation of the collecting system of one or both kidneys, kidney stones or, uncommonly, tumours. The burning sensation is most acutely felt whilst urinating. Combined with this there is a frequent urge to empty the bladder. If blood is present in the urine it could point to kidney or bladder stones, or possibly even a kidney or bladder tumour. In this circumstance it is important to let a doctor know the symptoms.

     One other diagnosis could be vulvodynia, which is chronic vulva pain or discomfort. This is often characterised by burning, stinging, irritation or rawness. If it lasts for more than six months it has a lot in common with chronic pelvic pain. Both of these conditions can have a serious impact on the function of those affected, both at home or at work. People can be affected both physically and mentally.

I have had this issue, and I am telling you I went through different doctors to find out I have pelvic floor dysfunction. It affects the bladder, urethra, bowels, not mention the horrible pain like a pressure in the pelvic and rectal area.  It causes urinary hesitancy, burning in the pelvic area, uti, bowel incontinence in some cases.  Its actually called vaginismus.   You can go to www. Vaginismus.com.  I highly recommend seeing your physician,  to rule any thing out.  I get spinal injections, because I'm in so much pain. I have a bulging disc in my lower back from falling on my tailbone.  There is a lot of info online about this , what ever you want to caLL it.  I hope you find relief.

There can be many different causes of this burning sensation in the lower abdomen or pelvic area. There must be some accompanying symptoms as well. However, as a general rule it can be because of a urinary disorder because of a bladder or kidney problem, a bowl problem or even because of some infection in the uterus, fallopian tubes or ovaries. So it might not be cancer at all. I would suggest go to a good doctor and get yourself tested before you come to any conclusions yourself.

Please go to a doctor immediately or even consider going to the emergency room. It could be as simple as a urinary tract infection to an STD or Vulvodynia. It could be a ruptured spinal disk which causes a symptom of burning skin.
I hope it is something simple and the sooner you get proper medical care, the sooner you can stop worrying that you are dying.

Good luck!

My father also has a burning sensation down in between his legs & the dermatologists have no idea what this is. He has had this condition for about 8 years & has found nothing to relieve the pain. He just takes pain pills that his general practioner prescribes for him... He is 84 years old though..
