Accidentally straining the groin muscles is the most common cause of groin pain, especially among athletes. This can be treated by resting at home for two or three weeks, taking painkillers and applying an ice pack to the affected region. Unless the pain is severe and persistent or accompanied by other symptoms such as swelling, fever and nausea, the use of surgical procedures will not be required for treatment of the pain.
