What Causes Pain In The Groin On The Right Side?

I have pain in my right side hip and groin that extends from my ribs on that side and down my right leg. What could be causing this?

Answer

The pain may be originating from a problem in your spine. It could be due to issues with ligaments, joints, or discs. You'll need to see your doctor to determine exactly what is causing it. I hope you see one soon - that sounds very painful!
