can an inguinal hernia (left) cause pain on the left side of the body from the left hip front and left glute up to the left ribs?

Rare but possible: Usually hernias cause pain in the groin. If the mass has caused splitting of muscle tissue, pain can be in the area you note. Best option will be to be seen for an exam by a surgeon to determine if a clinical relation exists.
