Short : Short answer is probably not. Sports hernias usually are seen in athletes who participate in sports with a lot of repetitive lateral movements, like soccer or hockey players, and tend to occur over time with repeated exercise. If you haven't been exercising for a while and then jump back into it, which it sounds like that is what you did, then it's much more likely that you've just pulled muscles/strained ligaments in your abdomen and inguinal regions. The muscles that are irritated will usually get better after about a week of rest, but ligaments tend to take longer to heal, which is way your groin is still tender. It's ok to restart exercising, but i would work your way back in slowly. I would also make sure that you do proper warm up and stretching exercises before you engage in any vigorous sports like basketball. If after several weeks of resuming your exercises you are still having tenderness or swelling, then i would consider seeing a surgeon to check for a hernia. ...Read more
