Dr. Amir M. Khan answered:

a strain in my groin?

Groin strain?

Hand
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.

Strained muscles groin ?

OK?

Muscle
Cold compresses to sore areas and if able to use safely, NSAID (like Aleve or Advil) can reduce the discomfort while it heals over next few days. If bruising / severe pain / persists beyond about 5 days, see Dr for exam.

What causes groin hernias?

No specific cause

Groin or inguinal hernias are quite common in men, and may be somewhat hereditary. It is a weakness in the fibers that may be weak since birth. Can sometimes be associated with heavier lifting or repeated straining.
