What causes pain in the groin area?

Thankyou for this service! I worked as a decorator for many years, a lot of physical activity, and now at the age of 57 i`m experiencing pain in the groin. I thought I had contracted a sexual disease form oral sex, and took a course of Levofloxin, and then followed it up with treatment for the prostate! What can you suggest? Is it a matter of exercises, like Pilates, and supplements for joint pains? I go to a health centre at the moment, swim and lie in a hot tub and it seems to help a bit. What a shame if I can`t get up to those mountains this spring for a walk! All the best and thankyou. Michael B. (I am six foot, 85 kilograms, and no medical problems. I have had problems like this before and usually sorted it out with a session at the osteopaths to crack the back into place after working hard. I am now not working. Thanks.)

Based on your description there could be a number of causes for the groin/leg pain on the left side. A small stone in the ureter that has passed on above from the kidney which is lodged in ureter, can be responsible for this pain.

Urinalysis, X ray KUB/ Ultrasound abdomen pelvis should be done. If none are found then neuromuscular disorders should be worked up. A physical exam would indicate whether its a leg/groin/hip joint issue or a back/spine problem. An MRI of lumbosacral spine can be advised, based on the physical exam. In the meanwhile, antispasmodic medication can be added to the Advil or Tylenol.

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

Wishing you all the best.

Dr. Iven Romic Rommstein, General Surgeon
