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

I have black flecks in my stool , specifically, after I wiped. I recently ate broccoli though (less than 24 hours ago), but couldn t determine for myself if it was simply undigested broccoli buds or not. I am also suffering from pretty bad hypochondria. I am misdiagnosing myself all over the place ( back pain = spinal tumor , testicle pain = testicular cancer , and so on). The stress has gotten pretty bad, as this bout of hypochondria has been pretty intense for the past two weeks. Due to a lack of medical insurance, I ve yet to set an appointment for a physical, and of course I m terrified. I m sure my anxiety has caused some of the pain I m diagnosing. Does it sound plausible that the black specks could be broccoli buds or have I given myself something like IBS? Also, any general advice you could give me to get me through this stressful period would be helpful. -Andrew

I was training in mid August for a 1/2 marathon in early Sept. I had been training all summer and had previously run 2 marathons and four 1/2 marathons. One day, I could only run 3 miles due to lower abdominal pain. I thought I had a strained hip flexor from weight room work and received physical therapy for it. It had been tight. I did manage to survive the 1/2 marathon but it was painful- both the hip flexor and the lower ab pain. I waited a week and tried jogging 3-4 miles and still the lower ab pain- mostly on the left side. 3 weeks later I was in the hospital with a 3mm. kidney stone on the left side. They said I also had 3 small ones on the right side. This was after a CT Scan. After 36 hours the pain went away and I was dismissed. I waited 2 weeks and tried running. I finished 3 miles, but again lower ab pain (just above or beside groin) on the left and middle. I had testicular cancer 11 years ago (left testicle removed plus 6 weeks of radiation). I am 60 years old, am 5' 11" tall, weigh 165 and run 4-5 miles daily or did until the past 2 months. Blood tests 3 days after getting out of the hospital were normal and the urine showed just 1-2 red cells. I was in the hospital 1:30 A.M. on a Sat. morning until noon on Sunday. I went back to work on the following Monday and feel fine, except for running. I do not know if there is still a stone that hasn't passed causing the lower left ab pain when running or some inflammation?? I have taken some antiinflammatory meds but that doesn't seem to help much. I can run through it for 3-4 miles so it's not extreme. I'd like to get back to my regular training, but it's been 2 months with the lower ab just above the grouin pain in the middle and on the left. I see my regular doctor again in 3 weeks and the urologist in Dec. for my yearly checkup from the testicular cancer. Your thoughts.???
