Patient

Q: I'm an athelete in track and i was running the 800m race, i was on the second turn after my start and i felt a pop in my groin on he right side, which i have previously had hernia surgery for and think i may have another one, but after it happened i went to the ER and they told me i pulled a muscle but it hurts very badly in my groin and my right testicle is slightly larger than a golf ball at th moment, is there anyway to tell if its a hernia or if it is just the pulled muscle?
