What usually is the cause of somebody's groin pain?

Depends-Need More: It would depend on associated factors. If you are very active, it could be a muscle strain. If there are lumps/bumps in the area, it could be lymph nodes associated with infection. Pain could be referred from reproductive organs, back, or hip. Timing of the pain could indicate a possible cause. There is just not enough information.

UTI must be excluded: Tell him that he may have a UTI or a std which can affect his prostate + his epididymis/testis. This can lead to long-term problems. Also that you are concerned that it is something that you might catch and thus will refuse sex until he gets checked out. Good luck.
