Quick Reference

A pain in the groin. In athletes, this is often assumed to be a strain or other sport-related injury of the muscles in the groin, but there are many other causes including osteitis pubis, hernias, disorders of the lymph nodes, various forms of arthritis, stress fracture of the thighbone or pelvis, and (rarely) tumours. Any persistent pain in the groin should be investigated by a doctor.
