Having abdominal and testicle pain, had infected cut on foot. Is it possible I have a hookworm?

I have right side abdominal pain , and testicle pain when i am inactive as well as active. I recently had an infected cut on my foot and recall going outside while this cut was on my foot when it was wet out. Doctors said i may have pulled my groin but my groin muscle does not hurt, only my testicles and right abdomin area. Is it possible I have a hookworm?

Your symptoms can be due to ureteric stone, it can lead to right lower abdominal pain radiating to testis. I would advise you to get Ultrasound Abdomen, Xray KUB and Urine Routine Microscopic examinaton done.
It doent looks like a hookworm is causing these symptoms.
Get back to me with reports and we can it further.
Meanwhile take plenty of fluids and antispasmodic like cyclopam 1 BD
