Groin pain: If there has been no recent strain or other injury to the groin, arthritis of the hip often presents with pain in the groin on walking. Strain of the inguinal ligaments, if it has occurred, may take weeks to heal. If your symptom persists get examined by your physician or an orthopedic specialist.
