User :   My 13-year-old son has a pain in the groin. Dull, achy pain. It started after playing hockey on Sunday. Hurts when he walks. Pain is located in the pubic region. No abnormal symptoms in urinating, no external signs of injury. Does not affect testicles.
Doctor :   hi
Doctor :  
Doctor :  
how did the pain start?
User :   Hello from Minnesota, USA
User :   Most likely fell on ice or lost footing on ice awkwardly.
Doctor :  
Doctor :   and since when is he having the pain?
Doctor :  
did you take him for a physical examination?
Doctor :  
are you giving him any pain medication?
User :   Since Tuesday afternoon (2-3 days after incident)
User :   No physical yet because thought pain was temporary.
User :   No meds
Doctor :  
Doctor :  
but now since the pain is persisted
Doctor :  
i suggest that he should be examined to see that there is nothing major to be worried about
User :   Could this be a muscle strain, muscle sprain? Does not appear to be hernia, because there is no lump or bulge.
Doctor :  
and give him Tylenol tablets one tab after food two times a day
Doctor :  
it can either be a silent bleed inside which is now causing pain , or a hurt in the vital structures which is getting more inflammed now..
Doctor :   hernia is caused when abdominal structures come out into the scrotum
Doctor :  
so it may not be hernia in his case
User :   A silent bleed - is it a tear in a muscle?
User :   Has this the potential of being a serious medical issue?
Doctor :  
that can be determined by examination and a doppler scan
Doctor :  
if the pain continues to be there and unattended, then it might lead to serious issues later
Doctor :  
so do not delay anymore.
Doctor :  
take him for a examination soon
Doctor :  
such that necessary action can be taken soon
