Thank you for your query at DoctorSpring.com
As per your description, it looks like Inguinal hernia.
Abdominal content like Bowel or fat comes out through a defect in the groin and present as a swelling. It is better seen in standing position. Most of the times, it disappears in lying down posture as the contents go into abdominal cavity.
Next possibility is Lipoma, collection of fat .
These are confirmed by Clinical examination.
Please consult your Surgeon and get examined clinically. If he is not sure,he can ask for an Ultrasound abdomen which gives a clue to the diagnosis.
Nothing to worry.
Any disease can be managed effectively.
Hope I answered your query.
If you have any questions, I will clarify further.

Wish you good health.

Yes the consistency could be firm.
Kindly get it examined and get back to me.
I will help you further based on examination findings.
