A hypothesis test formally tests if two or more population means/medians are equal.
When the test p-value is small, you can reject the null hypothesis and conclude that the populations differ in means/medians.
Tests for more than two samples are omnibus tests and do not tell you which groups differ from each other. You should use multiple comparisons to make these inferences.
