Groin pain alleviated when walking. No swelling or redness. Hernia, appendicitis or stones?

hi, my boyfriend is having severe pains in the groin area. it alleviates when he walks. there is no swelling or redness. He does not have any fever. It is mainly in the right side but he says it originates in the lower groin area and irradiates upward, staying in the right quadrant. i can see a possible hernia , appendicitis or possible stones. Would you have a better idea?

Hi friend
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Hernia can be seen or felt.
Better on walking means less likelihood of Nerve or Muscle pain
Absence of swelling and redness ia against local inflammation.
Appendix pain starts in mid-line ad then localises to right lower quadrant/ fever is usual.
Stone is most likely but urinary symptoms will be there sooner or later.

A number of possibilities...! Repeated examination / may be tests / and time will tell.

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
