He could have a hernia.
INDIRECT INGUINAL HERNIA
Where it hits: In the groin, near the thigh
Who's at risk: Men under 30 with a family history
How it happens: Tissue left behind from testicular development provides a pathway for the intestines to escape.
Need-to-know info: The old "turn your head and cough" exam usually catches these hernias. Surgery is the best treatment.

Hernia: A hernia occurs when a part of the muscle wall of the abdomen gets weak and allows part of the intestine or other intra-abdominal contents to push through. If this happens near the scrotum, the hernia sac can push on the blood supply to the testicle or other areas of the scrotum. Usually, coughing or sneezing makes the pain worse.

Varicocele: This condition involves swelling of the veins draining the testicle, and usually appears on the left side. Larger varicoceles can be felt as a soft mass above the testicle, or even seen in the standing position. Varicoceles can also have affect male fertility. Varicocele repair may be considered in cases of severe pain that doesn’t go away, once other possible causes have been ruled out.
