Well, are the boys packed in too tight in their underwear and pants?
Do you have an external hemorrhoid? Sometimes the pain is radiated to other areas..and I've felt it where I'd never have expected.
You should, however, do a manual check for lumps in that area, could be an inflamed lymph node.
My husband's "boys" get sore from nerve compression in his back..
or when he's been riding his bike or done too much bending/working around the yard. His job has him sitting for 12 hours, but ultimately it's radiated nerve pain.
I can relate to pain in that area from pressure on a nerve right at the hip level...yep, panties that are too tight or right at that level. The pain is horrific from the hip, diagonal to the front of the groin/upper leg and down.
Hope you find the culprit. I know it's not comfortable.
