There are at least several possibilities
Muscle strain or tendon irritation for sure if injured from the way you sit.
Hip pain can be referred to this area and a hip xray would resolve this. A doctor could do maneuvers during an examination to see if this is warranted.
Hernia is a possibility even thought the pain is a little displaced, although one would most often notice a bulge or pain on touch/pressure, or a reducible bulge.
If this is just above the thigh toward the middle of the body then lower abdominal, uterine, bladder, colon pain although this should be discernible with pressure on the soft tissue.
If more lateral over the bone then I would still go with hip, joint, tendon type pain.
If rest and gentle stretching is not taking care of this, then an exam is in order.

I think you are probably right pain is greater after sitting cross-legged. when streching leg out pain occurs.

A hip x-ray is fairly easy and not too expensive.
