Thanks for your query.

Your swelling may be either inguinal hernia or hydrocele.
Testicular swelling has to be diagnosed between Infective and non-infective.
You yourself or your general surgeon may try to go above the swelling that is reach the base of the swelling. If you reach the base, it may be Hydrocele. If it is not possible to reach above the swelling top of the swelling it may be hernia.

To confirm, you may contact a radiologist, who will do a small part sonography for proper diagnosis.

Hope that answers your query, yet I shall be available for any follow-up questions.
