Just about where the most obvious tendon from inside leg enters near the scrotum
Expert:  Dr. Thomas, MD replied 5 years ago.
The tendon of the leg should not enter the scrotum
Is there a bulge here?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
No does not enter the scrotum ..I was just trying to describe the location of the pain which happens after some type of excercise or sometimes just sitting too long
Expert:  Dr. Thomas, MD replied 5 years ago.
This is most likely a chronic tendon tear at this location.
Hernia is a possibility and one does not have to have a bulge.
Pelvic pain syndrome is another possibility
Very specifically, you want to have the doctor order an MRI of this area if possible, as this will show everything in a superior fashion, including scaring, tendon tear, degeneration of the tendon, ligament problems in the pelvis, etc.
An orthopedist would be OK but i tend to refer patients to a physiatrist for this type of problem, a doctor specializing in PM&R, physical medicine and rehabilitation, as the structural assesment and solutions will be more varied and comprehensive.
Without such assessment it will be difficult to say exactly what this it.
Let me know if you have further concerns.
Good luck
