Is this hernia?

I have a swelling in the right part of my groin. The swelling has been getting bigger over the years and disappears when I lie down. My question is whether this is hernia and if so, what can I do about it?

Yes, it looks very much like a reducible hernia. The best solution is surgery which can be carried out by a well-trained doctor as a day case.
