In brief: Groin pain

Groin pain is concerning for a hernia.
Perhaps there is something about the position that you are in that exacerbates the issue - although hernias are more commonly noticed when there are increases in intra-abdominal pressure, like when straining. If the problem is consistent over time, then it should be evaluated.
