Sharp intense pain in my groin area

I had a lump in my right groin area above my testicle approximately 2 inches above and to the side of my penis and now I get sharp pains there from time to time, especially if I touch it and put pressure on it. The lump itself never hurt and went away a while back, but the sharp, very intense pain started then and is still there. I am a 43 year old male. I am not overweight or have had any problems in the past with this issue.

I am a 56 year old male. I just left the ER after going there due to sharp stabbing pains on my left sign, lower groin area. I have been getting them off and on for about 3 weeks now, but they are getting more intense and more frequent. I had xrays and urine analysis with negative results. Doctor thinks perhaps a hernia is forming in that area and has not shown up as a lump or bulge just yet. Does that make any sense?

Hie. My problem is I have sharp pains in the lower part of my right abdomen. My groin area just above the penis below my stomach sometimes hurts as well. on days that I masturbate maybe some 5 hrs later I have this sharp shooting pain through the penis on the inside, like on the inside. It persists for a few seconds during which I cant even walk and I gotta maintain that posture until it passes. I masturbate an average one time every day, I don t have hair thinning issues and concentration problems though I think these groin issues are masturbation related. also recently I have started to feel this burning sensation at the tipof my penis. what could be my issue and how may I remedy it? thank you

Hello, For the last 5 and 1/2 months, I have been getting sore and burning sensations in my throat after various kinds of excersise. The more intense the excersise, the sooner the pain arrives.. For example, I get it after 8-10 minutes on the thread mill, and after 1 and 1/2 miles of biking... It this GERD (GER) or something else.....I am 55 years old and have a good medical history, except for having the same thing that Lance Armstrong had in 1986 (seminomae testicular cancer), got radiation treatments, and a clean bill of health.

for the last 5 months have had a dull pain in my right groin area. I do not see any physical change, either by sight or touch however I find that when I sit for a while the area tightens up when I start to walk but as I as walk for a short time then it loosens up. I did have testicular cancer 14 yrs ago so I did check my right testicle and it feels fine.
