Varies : There are a number of possible causes, consider being seen. The lymph nodes are a filtering system, and lymph nodes can often become enlarged when a person develops an infection. Because there is an increased amount of nodes in the groin, this can cause pain and swelling in the groin. There are many other possible causes as well.
