Muscle strain or groin pull???

    I have a tight feeling around my whole groin area, but more intense on the right side which seems to begin behind my testicle leading to the inner thigh?

    The odd part is that it only hurts when I am sitting in an upright position for long periods of time.

    I just started a new workout program and its harder than I am used to working.

    If it seems to get worse I will definitely go to the doctor, but I wanted to get some viewpoints first. Thanks in advance.

    The only thing I could say would be lay down and get some rest and try not to exert yourself for a while. But, yeah, if it persists then go see a doctor.

    Okay, now this may sound a bit crazy...

    Is it possible that the pain only while sitting can be due to wearing new uniform pants at work (that may be too tight) cutting off circulation or something? I am wondering if that could be mistaken for groin/muscle strain.

    you may have a hernia or a myriad of other things. You need to have an exam.

    Thanks for the sage words.
    I went to the doctor rule ruled out a hernia. He believed it to be either due to the new workout I am doing and my body not being used to it, or that I did some bruising around my cock and ball area when I masturbated with a band around them.

    If not better in a week, come back to see him.
