See a doctor: Wihtout knowing anything else, this sounds like a hernia. See a doctor for further evaluation.
Dr. Matthew Lublin

See an MD: A lump in the groin can be caused by many different things. If the lump comes and goes and / or you can push it in, it is likely a hernia. Other causes can be a lymph node, a lipoma ( a benign fatty tumor) , or a simple cyst.
Dr. Michael Miller

Different options: The groin has a lot of things in it both in the skin and below it. Sweat glands, hair follicles and skin cysts as well as lymph nodes, fatty tissue, vessels, tendons and other things. Is the lump growing, inflamed, painful, painless, draining, recurrent or constant, moveable or fixed...? Each of these (and many more) will provide your doc the answers as to what it is and what needs to be done.

Depends: Could be a hernia it the lump comes and goes. The good news is that it sounds like you do not have any enlarged lymph nodes which could be a sign of a cancer.

He's currently being checked for hurchsprung diseise could this have anything to do with the lump in groin area he suffers severe bloating too?

See a Ped surgeon: I assume youre asking about a baby? Hirschprung's disease would be a cause for constipation. This could definitely be a cause for severe bloating. The lump in groin area may be a hernia that is worsened by straining on defecation due to Hirschprung's. I would recommend consulting your local pediatric surgeon for both.
