Small Lump after weight lifting

I have a small lump that i just noticed right above the crease where my thigh and pelvis meet.(lower left abdomin area) The pain is not bad at all just a mild discomfort. I noticed a twitch right after doing a set of squats but it did not hurt at all. I continued to do leg presses and still nothing. I woke up this morning on the 9th of may and tried to massage the sore area and felt a small little lump there. Im gussing a mild inguinal hernia but i have seen photos and my lump is barely noticable if at all. Any suggestions.

Your doctor can examine you and tell you if this is a hernia or not (if he/she is unsure, then a referral to a general surgeon would be appropriate, and is a hernia is suspected, then he/she can also refer you to a surgeon).
