I have had an extreme pain in my groin, that the doctors have not been able to figure out?

Several years ago I had an angiogram, everything was great. for the past 3 and a half years I have had an extreme pain in my groin, that the doctors have not been able to figure out. for the first three years it was so severe that I couldn’t do anything to change the pain. Since January I have had three events where the pain has dropped a little, still extreme though. last night was the last, now if I compress the vein at about the location of the insertion, my pain goes away completely. what should I do

Hello. You seem to be suffering from chronic groin tendinopathy. the fact that by applying pressure can affect the pain shows it is probably related to Adductor Tendinitis. In my opinion you need to consult a Physio Therapist who will be able to help identify the exact problem and provide appropriate therapy. Regards

Thanks for the query..

Pain in groin can be most commonly due to causes like muscle, ligament and tendon strain/injury.
It is commonly seen in sportsmen and is worsened with regular sports or exercise..

Other common causes can be Testicle inflammation or Epididymitis, Bursitis or joint inflammation, Inguinal hernia, Hydrocele, testicular torsion, Avascular necrosis etc..

So first of all consult a Physician and get a thorough clinical examination done and an ultrasound can be done for confirmation..

For now avoid excessive exertion and take painkillers to control pain..

Hope this helps..
