Groin pains. Can they be nonphysical and just come from anxiety?

Groin pains. Can they be nonphysical and just come from anxiety?

Groin pain would be: An unlikely anxiety symptom. Anxiety symptoms can include feeling nervous or irritable, muscle tension (especially in neck, shoulders ; back), poor quality or minimal sleep, lack of concentration ; easy fatiguability. Lump in throat or butterfly in stomach sensation can occur. Sometimes the worst thing about anxiety is the just not being able to put your finger on the reason that you feel that way.

Testicular pain but at first I wasn't sure if it was in my groin or testicle maybe even both. Two doctors have assesed me could it be anxiety?

Testicular pain but at first I wasn't sure if it was in my groin or testicle maybe even both. Two doctors have assesed me could it be anxiety?

Very unlikely: That anxiety is the cause of testicular pain, especiall if it is only on one side. If it is only one testicle it could be from an early inguinal hernia.Inguinal hernia is unusual, but possible in a 17 year old. If both testicles hurt then maybe it is psychsomatic. Good luck.

Do lymphomas grow symmetricalaly? Have 2 symmetrical groin lymph nodes. 2 docs say don't worry - perfect CBC Have health anxiety so I worry

Do lymphomas grow symmetricalaly? Have 2 symmetrical groin lymph nodes. 2 docs say don't worry - perfect CBC Have health anxiety so I worry

Possible lymphoma: A single firm lesion in the groin could always be pathologic and not inflammatory. Symmetrical nodes rarely represent bilateral mets which could occur from a lesion near the anal canal. If the nodes do not enlarge, and are soft then watching is justified. If nodes increase in size and number then excisional bx indicated. FNA is rarely of value in lymph node pathology.

Trust problem?: I'm thinking that you are having trouble trusting your answers. I've read them and they all make pretty good sense - even somewhat reassuring. So, I'm thinking that it might really help you to find a good specialist Health Psychologist to guide you through the medical maze and let you know how to accept reassurance. Today's medical world is stressful - having an expert on your side is good.

Slight heavy feeling/ache center of my chest breastbone also slight shortness of breath can feel an ache in groin to. Anxiety?

Possibly: At your your young age the likely problem with your heart as well. AS this is also very slight and you are also having some breathing problems this is suggestive of something other than a cardiac or lung disorder. The ache is the groin is unclear but unless your are very active this may also be attributed to "nerves" This is interpreted as anxiety or physical manifestations of stress. See doc.

I have a dull pain in my pelvis! I'm 24 female, terrified I have ovarian cancer. Gp apt next week. Suffer serious health anxiety. Help me please?

Very rare under 40: Do you have a family history of ovarian cancer? There are many non-serious causes of pelvic pain in women your age. Ovarian cancer seems like a really remote possibility given your age. It typically occurs in women over 40, half are over age 60. Be calm and wait for your check up. Thanks for trusting HealthTap!

What would have been the reason for severe waist pains & pains around the left side of my groin?

What would have been the reason for severe waist pains & pains around the left side of my groin?

Doctor can evaluate: There are many causes of pain in the left lower abdomen and groin, such as bowel problems, an infection, or cancer. A primary care doctor can evaluate if the pain is mild. Severe pain is an urgent problem unless it is a known problem already being cared for by the doctor. With severe pain, one may need evaluation at the er, plus urine tests, blood tests, and perhaps ct and/or ultrasound scanning.

Excruciatingly painful shooting pains in upper inner thigh/groin. Lasts 60-90 seconds, intermittent but gaining frequency over 4 days. Ends suddenly.

Neuropathic pain.: If you have recent injury to your back from a fall or lifting very heavy weight or sudden jerk, you may have "slippedDisc" and it may be pressing on the Sciatic Nerve and in certain position causing Sharp Shooting pain. Try Anti Inflammatory medicine like Ibuprofen and Applying Ice. Get examined if not improved by this week end. I am not aware of any other medical condition that you may have.

Hi. Since last night I've been getting really strong pains in my stomach area just above my groin it comes and gos about every half he or so any help?

Many possibilities: The stomach is up in the left upper quadrant of your abdomen so I am guessing that this pain is lower down in the pelvic area? Is it affected by having a bowel movement or urination? Any discharge? You should probably see a doctor as the list of possibilities is long including appendicitis, urinary stones or infection and other issues which can be serious if left undiagnosed.
