Hello,

While coughing there's is strain at the ligament , tendon , muscles at the groin area. Chronic cough lead to bulging in the area lead to formation of inguinal or femoral hernia. Renal caliculi may also present like this. Get treatment for cough then the pain may subside itself. You may use muscle relaxant with pain medication for relief. Please consult your physician he will examine and treat you accordingly.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

I am experiencing some pressure in my groin area. More specifically my penis and the left side of my scrotum. What could be causing this. Also, I don t know what may have caused it (too much strain, constant travel and being in a seated position, or improper cleaning) but I ve also got hemorrhoids.

I have pain where top of legs meets bottom of stomach. Hurts most when sitting. When I get up it is like something catches. Pain is constant and has gotten worse the past week or so. Pain burns sometimes. Just had my annual OBGYN apt. I had an ultra sound all was clear so I know it is not a female issue.
