Dear Sir,

Presence of pain in buttocks, groin and radiation to shin which is aggravated by cough possibility of Nerve root compression needs to be considered. The most cause of nerve root compression is very much likely to be Prolapsed Intervertebral disc (PID).

I would suggest you the following
1. Detailed Neurological examination by your Physician
2. Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) of the spine

Your local physician will know about the test.

Take Care
