Is chronic upper thigh pain near the groin area which is intolerable while walking a serious concern?
Can be due to osteoarthritis.
Thanks for posting your query.
The pain in upper thigh near groin can be related to osteoarthritic changes in the hip joint. These are basically age related degenerative changes in the weight bearing joints. The treatment options include pain killers, hot fomentation, lubricating agents like glucosamine sulfate, chondroitin , dycerin, etc and some life style modifications and physiotherapy.
Right now you can start taking Tablet Tylenol ( Acetaminophen) Double Strength after breakfast and after dinner. It is suggested to add calcium supplements 500mg each twice daily. This will take care of your mild symptoms in 3-5 days.
I hope this answers your query.

Surgery is the best treatment.
Thanks for writing again.
If it is an inguinal hernia then surgery is the best option. Other than that he can use a support belt for a temporary relief.
Hope my answer is helpful.
