Groin pain is not a life threatening condition but it is still dependent on the underlying causes. Generally, sensing the pain under your groin will just heal on its own. You just need to give some time to it to rest and recover to its own. In order to speed up the healing process, you might want to consider some tips to lessen the pain:

Cold compress
Putting ice pack or something cold in the pain area of your body may relief and reduce the pain. Health experts are highly recommended doing it for 20 to 30 minutes every after 3 to 4 hours for 2 or 3 days, until the pain is gone.
Pain killers
Taking pain killers or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as ibuprofen and naproxen will alleviate pain and swelling. However, too much intake of these drugs without prescription coming from the doctor will also result in some complication such as kidney damage or rupture of some internal organs. Therefore, always seek first for your doctor before taking them.
Bandage tape
Using this kind of technique will help to lessen the pain. Simply, role your thigh with an elastic bandage or tape.
Perform gentle groin stretching
This exercise can be performed once the swelling has subsided and the pain is manageable and controlled. During the first attempt, stretch your leg and thighs slowly and gently then after some time increase the range of motion in the hip and inner thigh. Perform the series as your condition progresses.

I am having pains for two days now in my right leg growing area.And I do have degentrant joint deseas
Groin area pain is frequently caused by kidney stones. Degenerative joint diseases generally do not cause groin pain. See a urologist to decide what to do with the kidney stones.
