Any chance you might have strained your groin?

If you have no visible bulge, and an examination doesn’t reveal a palpable hernia or some other problem, then you might inquire about MRI (ideally, dynamic MRI) as it is superior to ultrasound and CT in detecting hidden/occult hernias. Even if it isn’t a recurrence, MRI may be useful in helping to diagnose the problem if an examination yields no good info.
