Does this seem like an Inguinal hernia?

First off I do not see any lump nor do I actually feel anything. I do have pain in the lower right groin area. If I am laying down I have no pain. I can relax in an easy chair with no problem. If I stand for long periods of time (an hour or more) the burning pain starts in the poochy area to the right and slightly above the penis. After it has started I can then feel this area and it feels fuller and more solid than the the left side but I don't feel any intestine poking through a hole. Possibly related to this is a different symptom. I occasionaly feel a pain deeper than this for a short period of time and will also feel a pain in my right testicle. These pains are low grade and disappear, they resemble being lightly kicked in the groin area or when you don't quite make it over the bar on a bicycle. I am in my fifties and am slightly overweight. I have been working out for over three years. I first noticed the burning pain when I found that I could no longer do my cardio on the eliptical machine a month ago. (I usually do 40 to 60 minutes at a resistance of 8 and alternate stride rates of 140 and 190 but found I could not even handle 10 min at resistance of 2 and a rate of less than 100 before the burning sensation became problematic) I have not been doing any weight training for over six months because of another problem (in my arm) which required surgery but allowed me to continue to do cardio so do not think that I would have strained it by lifting. I dring plenty of fluids and fibre so I am quite regular with soft stool. I have been tested for epididymus and nothing was found (and this would only apply to the testicular pain). I was also checked for Venerial disease (probably because of the mention of a burning pain) and was found to have none (as it should be as I have been faithful to my wife for over thirty years and she has been faithful to me as well). Does this sound like inguinal hernia or is it something else?
