What causes a strange discomfort in the groin area?
I have been experiencing a strange discomfort in my groin area, it almost feels like my underware is pressing on something on the left side. I saw the GP a couple months ago as it was more uncomfortable than painful. she said there were no glands down there which were swollen and all looked ok. There is nothing to see but I can feel it, not by touch but when I walk. Also seen her on several other occasions 1 bout of cystitis and 2 of thrush in last 3 months (Possibly nothing related!) I had a urine sample taken to test diabetes, all clear. I have another appt on Monday for a swab to be taken. Any ideas?
Hernia is possible reason.
Thank you for the query.
Such strange symptoms can be caused either by inguinal/femoral hernia or by inflammation of the adductor of the thigh. Sometimes it is very hard to find out which of this two conditions is the case.
Hernia can give discomfort or pain when coughing or lifting heavy objects. Both cases can give discomfort while walking.
Adductor inflammation is more possible if the discomfort has appeared after some physical activity like jogging or bike riding.
I suggest you to have groin ultrasound done to rule this conditions out.
Hope this will help. Feel free to ask further questions.
