Customer Question
My 5yo son starting...

My 5yo son starting complaining about a pain right above his groin area on the right side. He seems fine, no fever, no vomiting, just playing and being his normal self. He hasn't been sick or anything for a while.

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

He just now started complaining. He said that if I touch it hurts

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

No really, he's a pretty healthy boy

I'm sorry your son is having pain above his groin. There are several things to watch for:

If he stops eating and playing or he starts to have a fever

Both are possible signs of acute appendicitis or possible hernia. At this time, let him play and do all of his activities. It is possible that he just strained a muscle. I only mention possible symptoms so if either appendix or hernia is developing, you are aware. The chances of this developing into anything significant is very low. He will probably forget he has any pain in the next 12-24 hours.

I hope I have addressed your concerns. Have I?

Thank you for allowing me to provide assistance.
