Thanks for posting your query.
The pain in the left groin radiating down the inner leg can be due to-
1. Muscle sprain of adductor muscles of thigh.
2. swollen lymph nodes due to infection in the genitalia.
3. Spine related problems like ankylosing spondylosis, disc compression or nerve entrapment.
4. Infections, trauma, etc.
You need a detailed physical examination and related investigations under the care of your primary physician for proper diagnosis.
The treatment will depend on the cause.
Meanwhile continue taking ibuprofen and do a hot fomentation for temporary relief.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.
