Other option: A sprain/strain is when a ligament/tendon is injured by overstretching. There may be minimal or quite a bit of damage to it. Inflammation (redness, warmth, tenderness, and swelling) occurs as a natural healing process. The key is minimize further damage while keeping the area flexible/mobile. Ice massage (24-36 hours), elevation, gentle rom, motrin/advil are the keys to maximize healing. ...Read more

Differing Opinions: I am not sure why you would worry about a temporary diminishment of sperm production when you are hurting. Ice is good in an acute injury to diminish swelling. But, once swelling has occurred ice provides no benefit. Heat helps soften the muscle spasm and helps with some minor pain control. ...Read more

I fell and hurt my groin. I noticed a small  lump that got a little smaller its like a size of a marble. Could it be a strain or pulled muscle ?

Likely a lymph node: You likely pulled a muscle and the small lump is a lymph node that came up as part of your body's response to injury. The fact that it is getting smaller is reassuring. It will likely resolve by itself. If it doesn't go away in a few weeks or starts getting bigger, you should see a doctor as it may imply an infection or even a tumor. ...Read more
