It may not be a serious health issue in some, but in some cases, it could be a sign of a very serious disorder. Only a doctor can diagnose it. Here are some reasons behind groin pain in men.

Reason #1

If you see a pimple in any area of the groin, it could be due to a skin infection too. In such a case, a cream (that has to be applied topically) may help.

Reason #2

It could be gonorrhea or tuberculosis or simply an E.coli infection. When infections spread to the testicular region the area swells. Even fever could accompany. Antibiotics, anti-inflammatory tablets and painkillers are used to treat the issue. Go to a doctor.

Reason #3

Even tumours in the testicles could cause severe groin pain in men. Hormonal issues (testosterone) could also be the reason behind the issue. It is very important to visit a doctor.

Reason #4

Some sportsmen may experience muscle pain when they suddenly lift their legs. Such a pain may need rest and gently stretching.

Reason #5

Severe groin pain and vomiting could also be due to testicular torsion. In some cases, a surgery might be necessary to correct the issue.

Reason #6

Even kidney stones can result in groin pain. It is very important to rush to the doctor as there are no quick home remedies to treat the condition.

Reason #7

Some viral infections could cause inflammation of the testes. Swollen scrotum, nausea and severe pain in the groin could accompany. Chlamydia could also be the reason.

Reason #8

Even hernia could cause pain and swelling. A surgery is a must to treat the condition. In the initial stages, the problem may go unnoticed as there would be only mild pain. But without a surgery, it isn't possible to tackle hernia.

Whatever it is, rush to a doctor if you ever experience pain in the groin.
