Hi.
Welcome to just answer. I am here to answer questions for education and information. I will respond shortly with an answer, or a question for you

How old are you

85 years old. Male. Yes

What dis the x ray show of the hip on that side of the groin pain?

Ask Your Own Medical Question
Customer reply replied 9 months ago
Later curve that makes right leg shorter than the left I also have an enlarged prostate
Customer reply replied 9 months ago
should read lateral curve

That is a spinal finding.

Not a hip finding.

Have you had imaging of the hip on that side?

Ask Your Own Medical Question
Customer reply replied 9 months ago
The hip is fine.

OK

Groin pain would usually be referred from the hip, structurally speaking.

It would be rare, but it could happen if there is severe disc disease in the lower spine, compressing nerve roots.

Other problems such as hernia, prostate disease if male, infection and ligament tears need to be ruled out.

OK, let me know if you have more questions.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
