Swelling and pain
It could be a hernia. If it hurts, you definitely need to see the doctor.

Just from what you are describing it could very well be an inguinal hernia. Does it argevate when you cough or lift things? Does it bulge when you cough? My advise to you is to go see a doctor. There is nothing to be ashamed off.
It is better to be sure than sorry. I have one that they can't repair, it was also the result of an infection.
Don't delay if it is a hernia then things can get worse.
If the hernia or bulge protudes into one side of the scrotum, there is a chance of it strangulating and causing death of part of the bowel involved.
Going to see the doctor is not fun, but it is the best advice we can give you.
I hope things will turn out well for you.
Take care and let us know how you are doing.
