About the symptom

Swelling in the groin region refers to the lump that is found in the body where the upper thighs meet the lowest part of the abdomen

When to see a doctor

Seek professional care if you experience any of the following symptoms

  • Swelling in the groin region

Possible causes

  • Inguinal hernia

    An inguinal hernia is a condition where a bulge appears in your groin region, in the area between your lower abdomen and your thigh, through a weakening of muscles in your lower abdomen. This bulge is commonly a protrusion of your tissue or abdominal organs such as your intestines. If not treated, inguinal hernias can result in an obstruction of your digestive system.

Related serious diseases

  • Incarcerated inguinal hernia

    An incarcerated inguinal hernia is a hernia of small or large intestine which gets stuck in the groin or scrotum because of swelling and cannot be pushed back into the abdomen. It can lead to a strangulated hernia, in which the blood supply to the intestine in the hernia gets cut off causing complications.
