Hi friend
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Swelling and tenderness suggest inflammation of the area - may be cellulitis; may be lymph nodes? the area of drainage extends up to the umbilicus. Is there a swelling or only a feeling?. Is there fever? Any other swelling? Is she a diabetic? ...
Low back is the exit point for lumbar nerves - 1 to 3 - which supply the thigh. Spondylosis can press on the nerve and cause pain
The best solution will be to see a your GP as soon as possible. Physical examination and a few tests will diagnose the problem

Take care
Wishing her speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck

what is the problem ? is it dental or related to leg ? swelling in groin region could be due to a host of factors , more commonly lymph node enlargement.
this question should have been addressed to a genral physician rather than a dentist.

Thanks for posting your query.

Your sister most probably suffering from intervertebral disc bulge which might causes pressure over nerve roots.

I suggest you to consult an orthopaedician nearby for a detailed examination. You may get the X-ray / MRI of the area affected under his/her guidance to diagnose the condition.
