Question: I am a male. I have a lump in my groin area on my left side if you are facing me. It is the size of a half egg. It is painful to the touch.

Brief Answer:
Could be abscess

Detailed Answer:

You seem to have large abscess over 3 inch. I am surprised by its sudden appearance.
So it sounds to be abscess because of various reasons not yet known because of short history.
You should meet a general surgeon to drain it.
Medications or ointments would not help such size abscess.
