Hi Randy,
A few days ago I was doing 275lb. squats and felt a slight strain in what I now understand to be the inguinal canal area. This I'm all but positive is the region you described adjacent to your hip. Anyway it really didn't bother me but the day after I was really kind of alarmed at how sore it had become along the left edge of my lower abs by the hip. Really tender man. I got a little freaked-out that I'd given myself a hernia. I'm going to run-on hear a bit. I hope you'll bear with me. What my online research has revealed to me is that I probably have what's generally accepted as a "sports hernia." See if this looks like what you've got and we'll compare notes. http://www.med.umich.edu/1libr/sma/sma_sporthrn_sma.htm
