Stone or UTI: Pain radiating from the groin to the back is common for both urinary tract infections or stones that are blocking a ureter. Irritation causes the frequent feeling of needing to urinate. You should stop by a clinic for a urinalysis to get a diagnosis. It's quick and easy. Hope this helps!
