Thanks for writing to us.
Pain in the knees radiating to the groin may be related to an instability of the knee joint, local knee inflammation or a soft tissue injury. An MRI is the investigation of choice to detect any such problem. Consulting an Orthopedician will be the best thing to do.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
