thank you for your query.
abdominal pain in the left lower quadrant can be due to
1.inguinal hernia
3.muscle pull
your complains point towards Inguinal hernia.
This condition usually entails part of the intestine protruding through a tear in the lower abdominal wall. Severe pain in the lower left side of the abdomen generally occurs when coughing, lifting, or bending over. A bulge is generally noticeable near the pubic bone where the protrusion is, and there may be a heavy sensation in the groin. Men sometimes experience swelling or pain in the scrotum as well.

kindly contact your doctor for a physical check up for precise treatment of the pain.
thank you,
wishing you good health
