Hi, Welcome to HCM,

Groin is the portion of the body in the region where the thigh meets the abdomen. Since you are mentioning of twisted tube, I presume you are talking about lower portion of abdomen, just above the groin and for the same reason I presume you are female. Since you had a ultrasound scan done I think ovarian and uterine causes can be excluded. However appendicitis or other bowel causes have to be considered.

If it is the groin that is affected, then enlarged lymph nodes in that region have to be considered, which may result from injury / infection in the leg on that side.

Consult a Doctor who has to examine the area of pain and do the necessary investigations to reach a diagnosis and treat you accordingly. Good Luck.

Hi i m a 16 year old boy named Robby. 4 days ago I had an operation for a non mesh hernia. I had a small hole in my groin that caused fluid to make my right testicle to swell up. I had the hole stiched up from my surgeon. I was wondering if I could masturbate without any harm. I don t want to risk opening the hole again. The pain isn t that bad anymore and I still plan on taking it easy. Thanks

X-ray taken of left knee, difficulty positioning right leg over left, felt pain and discomfort in right groin, large bruising appeared in groin. So much pain in the groin, went from walking perfectly to using a wheelchair and walker. 1 1/2 year later , right thigh remains swollen and I am unable to walk without right leg pain. What could have caused this problem.? Bruising dissipated slowly over about 6 to 8 months.

I have been having stomach issues for several weeks now. I initially went to a Emergent Care clinic when the pain started. They referred me to a GI specialist. I wasn t able to get in to see the GI specialist for 2 weeks and when I did, after examination they recommended both a colonoscopy & endoscopy which is not scheduled for another couple of weeks. I asked if they were going to give me a scan to rule out anything before the endoscopies and he said he didn t want to subject me to unnecessary radiation if it can be diagnosed with a endoscopy. But that is still several weeks away. I am in a lot of pain, at first it was kind of all over my stomach, then in the center, now localized to the right side. I am not vomiting, but have some acid reflux, gas, and several loose stools and diarrhea each day. The pain is what concerns me as it is sharp shooting and most often right after I eat, but sometimes all the time. After reading some of the symptoms I am concerned about appendicitis. My symptoms started weeks ago. Have they been going on to long to be related to that?

My 22 year old grand daughter has been dealing with constipation since she was a baby. She is a very healthy eater, juicing ; eating good balanced meals.and she is athletic. She just had blood work and a cat scan to rule out appendicitis or kidney stones since she has been experiencing pain on her left side through to the back. The scan ruled out them out, however it shows extreme backup in her intestines. Her doctor suggests she be tested for ciliac disease. Is there anything else she could try before going through any more testing?
