Arthritis can cause groin pain if its enters the hip joint. Depending on the severity of the condition and the age of the patient, doctors may recommend pain relievers or surgery to ease the pain and restore freedom of hip motion.


The Mayo Clinic describes arthritis as an inflamed joint. Inflammation in a joint causes stiffness and pain.

The Groin

The groin refers to the area joining the top of the thigh and the lower abdomen, according to the Mayo Clinic.

Groin Pain

Hip arthritis can cause aches in the groin, according to the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons. People with this condition may feel more pain in the morning before they've begun moving around and performing their daily activities.


Anti-inflammatory pain relievers or other medications can ease the discomfort temporarily, while exercise can strengthen the hip to keep it limber, according to the AAOS. Surgery to repair or replace the hip may provide a longer-lasting solution.


If your doctor recommends surgery for hip arthritis, the AAOS urges that you discuss all the available options to select the most appropriate procedure for your individual age and condition.
