In human anatomy, the groin areas are the two creases at the junction of the torso with the legs, on either side of the pubic area. A pulled groin muscle usually refers to a painful injury sustained by straining the hip adduction muscle.
The term is sometimes used as a euphemism for sex organs since the names of the sex organs are taboo words in some cultures.
For vascular surgeons the groin is the preferred site for incisions to enter a catheter into the vascular system.
