Bruised buttocks or a contusion of the buttocks is bleeding in the muscles caused by a direct impact to the area. The muscle is crushed against the bone causing reduced range of motion, swelling and sometimes bruising.
A femoral hernia is found in the lower abdomen just above the groin. A lump may be felt in the groin area. Groin pain when exercising can be felt although not so much when coughing and sneezing such as in a inguinal hernia.
Gilmore's groin is a condition where the groin muscles and lower abdominal muscles are damaged. It is common in football players and may cause a vague persistent pain in the groin made worse by exercise.
Groin inflammation feels a lot like a groin strain but develops gradually with no sudden onset of pain. It is caused by repeated overuse. Symptoms include pain in the groin at the top of the adductor muscles that can radiate down the leg.
A groin strain is a tear of one of the adductor muscles on the inner thigh. A sudden sharp pain in the groin will be felt and depending on how severe the injury is there may be rapid swelling with bruising developing over time.
Hip bursitis or Trochanteric bursitis symptoms are pain on the outside of the hip that is worse during activity. Hip pain will gradually get worse and the area on the outside of the hip is tender when pressing in.
A dislocated hip occurs when the ball shaped head of the femur (thigh bone) moves out of its socket on the pelvis. Usually from a traumatic force to the thigh bone resulting in a severe hip injury requiring immediate medical attention.
A hip flexor strain is a tear of one of the two muscles at the front of the hip that lift the leg upwards. Sudden onset pain at the front of the hip or in the groin may be felt. Swelling and bruising may occur in more serious cases.
A hip injury caused by an impact to either the iliac crest at the front of the hip or the greater trochanter of the femur, on the side. Symptoms include pain in the hip with tenderness at the point of injury, swelling and bruising.
A hip sprain is an injury to the ligaments surrounding the hip joint. It is a rare cause of hip pain as the joint is very stable. Symptoms include a sudden onset of pain following a sudden movement, usually located at the front of the hip.
Hip tendonitis is inflammation of any one of a number of tendons in the hip although degeneration of the tendon is probably a more accurate description. Pain develops gradually over time with tenderness at a specific point.
Iliopsoas bursitis symptoms include pain at the front of the hip that may radiate down to the knee or even into the buttocks. There will be tenderness at the front of the hips and possibly in the front of the quadriceps muscles.
The iliopsoas muscle is a strong muscle that lifts the knee up. The muscle or tendon can become inflamed causing pain in the groin. There may be a sensation of tightness and swelling in the groin, especially if the bursa is involved.
Ilium apopysitis is an overuse injury that occurs in children and adolescents causing a dull pain at the front of the hip. It usually gets worse with activity and there may be some mild swelling.
An inguinal hernia is found in the lower abdomen just above the groin. Symptoms of pain in the groin during exercise which increases when coughing. A bulge in the groin may be seen which disappears when lying down.
Ischiogluteal bursitis is inflammation of the bursa at the top of the hamstring muscles. Buttock pain may gradually come on following a sprinting training session, be tender to touch and is aggravated by sitting.
The labrum is a ring of cartilage which surrounds the socket of the hip joint. This can an acute sudden onset cause of hip pain, or occur gradually over time. Clicking or locking of the joint, restricted movement and stiffness are symptoms.
Myofascial pain or trigger points in the Gluteus medius and Piriformis muscles can cause pain in the buttock area. A trigger point is a tiny localized knot in the muscle.
Osteitis pubis, also known now as pubic bone Stress injury results in groin pain originating from the pubic bones at the front of the pelvis.
Osteoarthritis is a degenerative condition caused by wear and tear in the hip joint. It develops gradually, causing an aching hip pain with stiffness and reduced range of motion. The condition gets progressively worse until hip joint pain is constant.
A pelvis avulsion fracture is where the tendon comes away from the bone often taking a piece of bone with it. This most commonly occurs at the ischial tuberosity causing buttock pain, local swelling and tenderness at a specific point.
A pelvic fracture is a break of any part of the pelvis. Symptoms will vary greatly depending on the severity or type of fracture and can range from mild pain of an avulsion fracture to severe hip and groin pain with numbness from nerve injury.
This is a hairline fracture of the pelvis, usually resulting from overuse. Symptoms include tenderness over the bone at the bottom of the pelvis. Pain in the groin or hip is felt that increases with exercise but eases or gets better with rest.
Perthe's disease is a condition causing hip pain in children. There is a disruption of the blood flow to the head of the femur (thigh bone) in the hip. Tiredness, joint stiffness, pain in the groin and sometimes in the knee are also symptoms.
Piriformis syndrome causes buttock pain that radiates down the leg. Usually happens gradually as the piriformis muscle tightens although symptoms of shooting pain into the leg will occur suddenly.
The Rectus Femoris muscle attaches to the hip bone at the front. An avulsion fracture occurs when a strong contraction pulls the tendon and a section of bone
Scrotal contusion is bruising in the scrotum or testicles following a direct impact to the area from a ball or opponent. There may be groin pain with swelling in the testicles along with bruising, nausea or feeling of sickness.
This injury occurs when there is a fracture at the neck or top of the thigh bone. It is more common cause of hip joint pain in boys aged 11 to 16 years old and occurs gradually over a period of time though over use.
A hip pain cause often seen in dancers where a snapping noise is heard or felt on the outer hip. Pain is not always present but can be felt at the front of the hip or side of the hip depending on which type of snapping hip is involved.
