[quote]Groin pain is a common complaint in athletes, and usually resolves by itself with a couple of weeks of rest. If the groin pain continues to flare up, the athlete may have athletic pubalgia, commonly called sports hernia.

"Sports hernia" is a misnomer, because there is no hernia (bulge) in sports hernia. "Sportsman's groin" was a term coined by London surgeon Jerry Gilmore, who attempted a surgical solution in 1980. But in the popular lexicon of the athletic community, that term was confused with the more common groin hernia (inguinal hernia), which is an entirely different disorder.

Athletic community slang mistakenly morphed Gilmore's term, "Sportsman's groin", into "Sportsman's hernia" .
That was soon shortened to just "sports hernia".

The name "sports hernia" stuck, and has been used in the news media and medical literature ever since. But it bears repeating: There is no hernia whatsoever in sports hernia. The term is a misnomer. There is no bulge, lump or protrusion in sports hernia. [/quote]

The above comes from the website [b][url]www.SportsHernia.Net[/url][/b] , which now has a new link pointing visitors who have a bulge to [b]groin-hernia.com / herniabible.com[/b], so that all might benefit.

Thanks.
