Tenderness: The problem could be from bone, muscle or nerve in that area. If there was numbness and/ or tingling, a pinched nerve occurring at the entrance of your leg/groin region would be suspected. See an orthopedic surgeon for evaluation if this symptom persists and appropriate tests or xrays will be ordered. A referral to a neurologist can be made if deemed advisable.
