Brief Answer: Inguinal hernia. Detailed Answer: Hello! Thank you for the query. Most likely your symptoms are caused by inguinal hernia. Due to a kind of hole in the abdominal wall intestines and fat are protruded in to a groin area. It usually gives a lump and/or pain in that area. The lump can be more visible when standing and coughing and disappear when laying down. I suggest you to consult general surgeon. In case of doubts ultrasound should be done. Hope this will help. Feel free to ask further questions. Regards.
