Brief Answer:
Inguinal hernia can be the reason.

Detailed Answer:
Hello!

Thank you for the query.

The symptoms you have mentioned are very characteristic for inguinal hernia. The pain (and/or protrusion) can be more noticeable when standing and coughing, lifting heavy objects or pushing hard on stool.

I suggest you to consult general surgeon. Physical examination is usually enough to diagnose it. In case of doubts, ultrasound can be done.

Hernia can be repaired with a surgery.

Hope this helps. Feel free to ask further questions.
Regards.
