I have dull ache in my right side of my groin area. Is it a testicular issue ?

Hi there . Ive had this dull ache in my right side of my groin area off and on now for a very long time now . I want to say about 10 years or so. Usually just goes away after a day or so. And doesnt return for months. But this last time it keeps on coming back just about every other day now for 3 weeks. So Ive checked all around that area and found that when i stand or sit down the tube on the back of my right testicle i looked up ( epididymis ) gets swollen near the body tail portion. It feels soft and spongy like but it definetly is a tube structure. Now when i lay down the tube returns to normal size. Now to add to this the all the aches goes away when i lay down but my right thigh begins to get numb and tingly. Then when i stand up only my right hip hurts. So in Summary Standing= Right side Hip and lower right back pain and (Epididymis) Swollen. Sitting =Right side Groin/Hip and Lower back pain (Epididymis) swollen . Laying down All pain gone but Right thigh goes numb and tingly (Epididymis) returns to normal. So Nerve or Testicle issue?I guess thats my question.

Thanks for query,
This is typical of having Right sided reducible indirect inguinal Hernia.
I am cent percent sure.
Consult surgeon and confirm the diagnosis and then go for surgery.
Your history is so perfect that without examination I can give diagnosis.
Ok and wish you good luck.
