In brief: Not necessarily
That is one possibility but less likely given that it hurts.
It may be a hernia or an enlarged lymph node that may just be from a skin or other infection in the area. Check with your doctor to further evaluate this, especially if it does not improve over a little time. If pain is severe, go to the emergency room as may be a trapped hernia which should be addressed right away.
