Is this groin pain occurring on the right or the left side ?

Did you have surgery or any trauma in the groin ?

Customer: replied 7 years ago.

I think , an ultrasound examination of the abdomen and pelvis would be needed here.

A left sided groin pain could be related to ovarian pathology( cyst, mass, torsion ) , left sided adnexal illnesses, pelvic congestion syndrome.

Colonic diverticulitis can cause left lower quadrant pain also. An ultrasound can pick up diverticular abscesses.

Please discuss with your physician about this. Its not advisable to ignore this symptom.
