In brief: Nerve irritation
A common symptom associated with inguinal (groin) hernias is a burning sensation overlying the groin and/or the thigh.
This is due to the hernia pushing up against the nerves that innervate these areas. While rarely disabling, this symptom will go away after hernia repair.

In brief: Depends
You have a symptomatic inguinal hernia.
As long as you can push it back in, it is not an emergency. Symptomatic inguinal hernias should be fixed.
