Brief Answer:
Better to get a clinical evaluation, examination and investigations.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your query.
Noted the history and understood your concerns.
Tenderness on touching and pain on walking or movements indicate the need to have proper clinical evaluation, examination and investigations as needed. Popcorns alone can not cause such symptoms.
In the presence of other problems it is better to be sure about the probable cause and management.
Tenderness and pain on walking/movement indicate internal inflammatory lesion may be like Diverticulitis or colitis as one of the possibilities.

I hope this answers your query.
