Lump in Groin?

I'm a 26-year-old female, generally in good health, but about a month ago I found a lump in my groin. I don't really know how to describe the exact location

I was sick at the time (a cold), so I attributed it to that.

However, I recovered from that cold quite quickly... but the lump didn't go away. It's about the size of a pea (with a slightly oblong shape), hard, and not movable. It is not sore. It cannot be seen, only felt. I'm really nervous that it hasn't gone away.

I'm currently living in Japan and [I]do not[/I] speak Japanese. Visiting the doctor for even minor things is always a stress-fest... it's something I try to avoid whenever possible.

I'm not sure what to do... should I be really concerned? I'd some appreciate some other people's thoughts/comments/advice.
