Groin Pain

Pain in the groin area is a symptom. The groin area is the area where the upper thigh meets the lower abdomen.

Pain in the groin can also originate in areas other than the groin, such as the leg. This is known as radiating or referred pain. For example, injury to the muscles or tendons in the leg can cause radiating pain to the groin area.
