Upper thigh pain. Can it be related to Hernia?

I have a question about my upper thigh, groin area. I play hockey. 5 times a week, for 2 hours. The season started about a month ago, but I started getting pain in my upper thigh, groin area about 2 weeks ago. At one point last week I could barely lift it while I was sitting, or standing. i sat out for practice for about 4 days, and the pain went away. I went to practice yesterday, and the pain came back. Today during practice, I fell, and felt a sort of tearing/popping. It is throbbing right now, and I don t know if it is a hernia . PLEASE HELP ME!!!!

Hello Lea
Thank you for getting in touch with us. We would like you to know that hernia problems are commonly seen in individuals who actively participate in sports and other strenuous activities. However, it could also be due to muscle strain or muscle pull. It would be tough for us to come to a final diagnosis without examining you. Therefore, it would be ideal if you would get in touch with your Doctor and get yourself examined. If it is hernia, it may be possible to push the hernia back into place with gentle pressure, or it may disappear by itself when the person reclines. Hope this helps
