Dear,

It is very much possible that the swelling you are feeling is a hernial sac which has developed secondary to lifting heavy weights. You need to see a general surgeon and get yourself examined by him to rule out the same.

Till you see him, kindly refrain from lifting weights as your problem may get aggravated.

I hope I have answered your query.
Regards.
