Urology/Pain at the groin and penis


Hi ,

I all of the sudden got a pain in my groin and feel something like the size of a nut in that place although not visible. I also feel as if there is a pull from there till the tip of The penis . Its here for 4 days and not going away . I also feel a bit of a pull at the foot right under the shoelaces . It seems like they all work in tandem what cold it be.




I can't explain the pull in the foot, but a groin and testicle issue could be a hernia and/or a testicle infection, cyst or inflammation.  It's impossible to tell from the limited information provided what is most likely, so we suggest you contact your physician and have it checked before it gets worse.
