The groin is not...: ....The testicle, and the testicle is not the groin. They are near each other, but if the pain is in the testicle it is in the testicle. If you are having pain in the testicle it could be something harmless like a viral infection that will pass, or it could be something much more serious. If it's been going one for weeks and isn't going away, you need to see your doctor.
