In brief: Many possibilities
Right lower abdominal pain can be cause by many things, including appendicitis, bowel obstruction, kidney stones, testicular issues, a hernia, muscular strain, constipation, or many other causes.
Best to see a physician, who can then exam you, possibly order some tests or studies, and make a better determination of what might be the cause.

In brief: Sports hernia
Sounds like you have a sports hernia.
This is a broad term that encompasses stretching or tearing of many different soft tissue structures in the lower abdomen and groin area. You can find good information about this on the aaos website. http://orthoinfo.aaos.org/topic.cfm?topic=a00573.
