In brief: Not normally

Generally greater trochanter bursitis causes pain in this region and sometimes down the outside of the thigh.
Groin pain is not characteristic of gt bursitis.If it persists get a thorough examination.

In brief: NO

Trochanteric bursitis only hurts on the outside of the hip.
If you groin hurts it is usually arthritis in the hip joint itself.
