Need more info: Is it random or is there something you do that faithfully will cause the pain? Bend? Cough? Is the area tender to the touch? Can you put your finger right on the spot and cause increased pain? Or is it an internal pain that is difficult to localize. Does it feel like a muscle ache? And electric shock? A burning? Is there a lump in the area? Any other symptoms? Nausea ? Gi cramps? Any recent trauma.

See Dr for eval: Several possible issues including but not limited to groin strain, vascular issues, nerve entrapment in hip/back/groin area, referred hernia pain, etc. Seek medical eval and get diagnosed properly, so proper treatment will follow. Good luck.
