Why does ureteric pain radiates from loin to groin?

What is back side flank or groin pain?
Flank pain refers to discomfort in your upper abdomen or back and sides. It develops in the area below the ribs and above the pelvis. Usually, the pain is worse on one side of your body. Most people experience flank pain at least once in their life, and the discomfort is usually temporary.
Does kidney pain move around?
Kidney pain is usually sharp if you have a kidney stone and a dull ache if you have an infection. Most often it will be constant. It won’t get worse with movement or go away by itself without treatment. If you’re passing a kidney stone, the pain may fluctuate as the stone moves.
