I have a swelling in my lower right pelvis that comes and goes,

This answer was rated:

I have a swelling in my lower right pelvis that comes and goes, it's painful to the touch and aches a bit. I've been doing crunches and pulled a calf muscle about 10 days ago. Is it a pulled muscle? It extends downward on my pubic region from the inside of my thigh to the shaft of my penis.

Dr Brims :

Hello, welcome to the site! My name isXXXXX and I will try to assist you with your medical question, and any medical information you seek

Dr Brims :

I'm sorry to hear about this

Customer:

Thank you. I'm rather puzzled by it since it occurred very suddenly

Dr Brims :

When did this start?

Customer:

Yesterday morning. By the evening it was gone, and it reappeared after I awoke this morning.

Dr Brims :

Okay, this may be a muscle tear, but it may also be a hernia, which is a defect in the muscle and fascia

Dr Brims :

I would make sure to have this evaluated as soon as possible

Dr Brims :

I would also stop crunches until then

Customer:

Yes, I have an appointment with my physician on Thursday. I will stop crunches. I had increased the number to a point of straining the day before it happened, and I pulled/tore a calf muscle extending to shoot baskets about 10 days prior. I thought they might be related.

Dr Brims :

The straining may have caused this

Customer:

I see. It helps to know that. I was concerned at first, thinking it might be something more serious.

Dr Brims :

I don't think it is more serious, no need to be too worried

Customer:

Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX wait then until my physician examines it.

Dr Brims :

You're very welcome

Customer:

I appreciate your help.

I am happy I could help

Customer:
