hello

 

Expert:  Dr. Thomas, MD replied 5 years ago.
This would be low for an aortic aneurysm, however, blood flow in the lower abdomen could be sensed.
An ultrasound of the abdomen would rule this out quickly.
By far one of the most common reasons for this sensation in this area is inflammation of the prostate gland. Often there would be other symptoms such as burning on urination or ejaculation, but not always.

Inguinal hernias might also give this type of sensation and they do not have to bulge out to create symptoms.

Gas in parts of the colon, in the case of hernia, can radiate vibratory sensation to the groin.

I suggest that you see a doctor who would have this broad approach to testing and diagnosis, such as an internal medicine doctor or family practice doctor who works with adults.

Good luck
