What does sporadic pain in the groin indicate?

default
Posted on Thu, 22 Nov 2018
Question: Hello Doctor.
Can you advise what can cause sporadic pain in the groin /pubic area? I had some pain in that area about 2 months ago that was checked for hernia and infection and both came up negative ( no burning during urination etc). The pain eventually went away after about 6-7 days. Well, it came back 3 days ago and it is very uncomfortable to say the least. I do have a history of stomach problems if that helps any but I am at a loss as to why this pain came back. My doctor said to take Advil for the pain and Cipro in the event there is an underlying infection. I prefer not to take additional medication if not needed but is this even possible that there could be an underlying infection, undetectable through a urinalysis, that could be causing this pain? I appreciate any light you may be able to shed on this...
Thank you !
