This is Dr. David
sorry you are having pain there
this could be from an inguinal hernia, or a pilled or strained or torn groin muscle which can be strained from lifting or physical activity.
you need to see a doctor to get an examination and ultrasound of the area.
it sounds like you have been trying to ice the area like for a muscle strain.
groin muscle injuries can take several weeks to sometimes several months to improve.
do you have a doctor you can see who can examine the area?
you may benefit from physical therapy and stretching exercises to help strengthen the muscle there.
let me know if you have questions.
