Groin pain that goes from the right side to the left side pubic bone sometimes aches around this are to just a dull annoying ache that comes an goes?

Muscle strain?: Did you do some sort of vigorous activity before this started? You don't mention your gender; if female, the ovary or uterus can be involved. If male, you don't have those parts!! Groin pain usually comes from pulled or strained muscles, sometimes from a hernia (pushing of insides through muscles), which may show up as a lump in the groin when standing, coughing, straining. If stays, see Dr. ...Read more

A buzzing feeling on front pelvis, on left side of pubic area? I might have Si joint prob or pirformis sydrome, could any of these cause it or not?

Pain: Less likely to be SI joint and not at all likely to be piriformis syndrome. Sometimes the SI joint pain may radiate to the groin area but would feel like a deep dull ache. It would increase while bending forward and esp getting out of a chair. There may be tenderness in the back. Please inform us of any aggravation and relieving factors, any other symptoms. That may get you better answers. ...Read more

I have a small wart like growth in my pubic area where it joins with the groin. It has a thin base and is easily movable and shiny texture. What is it?

Wart vs skin tag: A doctor can help decide what it is -or you can upload a pic here on Healthtap and get a diagnosis. Either way, it sounds like it could easily be ablated -or destroyed. Ideally a doctor could do that by freezing it off with liquid nitrogen, or giving you medication to try chemical destruction. I would favor the first option, as it's in a sensitive area. These are common issues-don't worry too much ...Read more

Pulled groin suddenly whilst running- 8 weeks ago. Pain returns after exercise- also feel slight discomfort pubic area at same side. No lumps?

Rest, heat/ice: Any pulled or strained muscle needs rest to heal. For this reason, avoid any activity or exercise that causes pain in that area. Use ice and heat alternately.

If problem persists after 4 weeks of doing this, then you should be seen by your doctor for tests and treatment. ...Read more

I have a pain on my groin, pubic area and it radiate into my inner thigh had X-rays done but nothing is showing and the pain gets worse at night?

Radiating groin pain: Could be : Sciatica due to herniated disc which would not show on xray, need MRI. Sometimes worsens with sleep position, hernia which would show on exam or CT abdomen/pelvis or clot in upper thigh/pelvis. A d-dimer detects the potential to clot (if low no clot), if high would need u/s/doppler. Also consider ovarian/kidney issues which would show on sono. Rarely may be colon.

Pinples On the pubic bone, and in the groin area. They look like pimples but they have a flat top to them. They start off looking big, but then they shrink down to little red dots.

Need to examine: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without taking additional history, and physical examination. However, if you are shaving your groin, stop doing that. Wash the area with soap and water, twice a day and keep it dry.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex.
Get HPV vaccine ...Read more

Can pubic bone instability cause slight swelling of the pubic mound and groin areas and pain in hip when walking long distances? And sciatica pain?

Can pubic bone instability cause slight swelling of the pubic mound and groin areas and pain in hip when walking long distances? And sciatica pain?

Shouldn't: While the pelvis is all interconnected, the pubic bone is in the front, and shouldn't cause swelling. It is curious why you think this joint is unstable. You may want to ask you primary care if an imaging study would be appropriate. Sciatica is typically caused by disc disease of the spine. Hope this helps! ...Read more

My groin (pubic area) was itchy so I applied a anti-fungal cream (1% clotrimazole) but it irritated and burn my skin. How do I stop the burn/tingling?

See answer: It appears that you are either sensitive or allergic to some ingredient in the Clotrimazole cream causing a "contact dermatitis". Would recommend washing thoroughly with mild, neutral ph soap and apply an over the counter 1 or 2% Hydrocortisone cream or ointment 2-3x a day. Can take up to a couple of weeks to resolve depending on severity. Hope this helps. ...Read more
