I have a pain in my groin or what feels like the back of my right testical im not 100% sure were it is but could it be my prostate or prostate cancer?
Not likely: The prostate is located deep in the pelvis, below the bladder and in front of the rectum. Prostate cancers rarely cause pain. You are 23 years old, so it is much more likely to be either a musculoskeletal strain (groin area) or testicular inflammation (many causes.) http://www.Nlm.Nih.Gov/medlineplus/ency/article/003160.Htm. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Prostate cancer occurs in older men and not with testicular pain. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

History/Exam/Tests: Prostate cancer (cap) does not generally have symptoms until it is fairly advanced and untreatable. Thus screening for cap has been done by asking for any family history of cap, examining the prostate through a rectal exam and by checking a test called prosate specific antigen(psa). If the exam or psa are abnormal, an ultrasound-guided biopsy through the rectum acquires tissue to assess for cap. ...Read more
Unlikely: If you haven't had a diagnosis of prostate cancer (pca) before, then hip pain is highly unlikely to be the first sign. If your blood psa level was low, then you could practically rule pca out. No need to do this test except to relieve you of unnecessary worry. Even if you do have pca diagnosis, other causes are more likely. It's even more unlikely if the pain is intermittent on both sides. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Sx of Prostate Cance: Many prostate cancers produce no noticeable signs and symptoms until late in their course. A psa or other lab test can serve as a useful screen, but imaging and tissue sampling biopsy studies are required, as is a thorough physical exam. It would be best to consult a urologist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
