Hi Welcome to Health Care Magic......
From the symptoms you have described looks like its a hernia. A reducible swelling in the groin area in this age is usually a hernia . If hernia is symptomatic the best treatment is to get it operated . The operation is commonly done by a surgeon and is a common procedure. Consult a general surgeon immediately for at times it may cause few complications.
