Check hernia: If movement is near inguinal/femoral area it may be a femoral hernia. If it is inthe scrotum it may be an inguinal hernia. In either case you should be seen by your primary-care provider for a diagnosis.

Hernia: Sounds like a hernia, which is a small hole in the abdominal wall muscles, allowing some fat or possible intestines to push through. Should be easy to confirm on a physical exam. Just go see your doctor and have it checked out. Good luck.
