Groin strain?: Generally a pulled groin will cause pain along the inner aspect of the upper thigh. The pain can be worsened by resisting adduction (squeezing the knees together against resistance) and or by abducting (pulling the affected leg away from the other leg as in a split). These exam findings may not be specific or sensitive in a laymans hand so please consult a specialist for proper evaluation.

It is possible: The cellphone manufactures say no. Some animal studies say yes. We may never know. It is hard to do a study on human gonads (any volunteers?). To be safe, carry it in a holster on your hip.
