Groin Pain

What is groin pain?

The groin area is the area where the upper thigh meets the lower abdomen. Pain is this area is referred to as “groin pain” and can affect both women and men for a variety of reasons.

These reasons may include musculoskeletal pain, trauma or injury (muscle strains, bursitis, or fractures), infections, tumors, or hernias to name a few. Groin pain can also originate in other parts of the body such as the leg, known as “referring pain”.

In males, inflammation of the testicles or other conditions affecting the testicles and scrotum can cause groin pain such as epididymitis, hydrocele, orchitis, scrotal masses, spermatocele, testicular torsion, varicocele, and testicular cancer.

In females, groin pain can also be caused by certain medical conditions such as inguinal hernias, bacterial infections, swollen lymph nodes, STDs, kidney stones, urinary tract infections, ovarian cysts, yeast infections, and cellulitis.
