Thanks for your query,based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have pain in Rt testicle and pulling sensation in the groin.
This could be either due to Inguinal Hernia or infection of the epididymis or testis.
Please consult qualified urologist for clinical examination and get following basic tests done to confirm the diagnosis.
1) Urine routine and culture
2) Ultrasound scanning of the abdomen .
3) Semen culture to rule out prostatitis.
Further treatment will be decided by him and will depend upon clinical examination , results of the tests and final diagnosis.
