Customer Question
I have something going...

I have something going on in my right side groin area. It feels slightly uncomfortable most of the time. Sometimes when I am resting in my recliner i will get a little sharp pain shooting out of this area.

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the pain? What seems to make the pain better or worse?

I went to my doctor today and he checked me for a hernia and felt my right testicle. Nothing. Inconclusive visit. I asked if a cat scan to look at the area would be good. No, he said. But I know my body and something is not quite right. This has been going on for at least several months. After the sharp pain I just rub the area some and maybe take some tylenol.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I have had bypass surgery in 2014.

Doctor: Dr. Arun Phophalia, Doctor replied 3 months ago

I agree, at least an ultrasound should be done for the evaluation.

If you do not have visceral symptoms (increased urinary frequency, urinary burning, heartburn, diarrhea/constipation, nausea, vomiting, fever, loss of appetite, bloating, gas, tenderness on abdomen), this is likely due to abdominal wall issue like groin strain. A pinched nerve in back can also cause these symptoms. MRI of back can show it.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.

is an ultrasound the best way or is a catscan better?
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
i would like to do further tests
Doctor: Dr. Arun Phophalia, Doctor replied 3 months ago

Ultrasound is a very good modality and it does not have any radiation. Thus far safer and does not take time.

CT scan usually is indicated when there are significant visceral symptoms.

If we are suspecting, abdominal wall issues, ultrasound is better.

If abdominal viscera is suspected to be the culprit, CT is better imaging modality.

It is privilege assisting you.

2) Groin injury

3) Pinched nerves in back

4) Hip tendonitis and bursitis

5) Osteitis pubis

6) Hip osteoarthritis.

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.
