Suggest you see a med. Professionalist, because physical exam is crucial to decide which one of the most probable causes exists:
1. Thrombosis of a major vein (phlebothrombosis, phlebitis)
2. Inflammatory leasion of large intestine (sigmoid colon) including forms of perforation or penetration into deep fatty tissue.
3. Inflammatory lesion of left ovary or of salpingian tube. Ovarial cyst.
4. Inflammatory lesion of lymph-nodes. This is possible, but less probable than tumorous lesion of lymph nodes ("tumor" may well be benign)
5. Forms of hernia (simple inguinal hernia or deep transsigmoid hernia or "obturator-hernia"
6. Malignant lesion of the obove mentioned organs.
7. Extra-uterine-pregnancy (your age?)
So, please see a med. Doctor.

The first thing that popped into my head was a blood clot. I've had 2 of them now, it's not a nice thing to go through, painful. I first noticed that my pants weren't fitting right, the left leg felt very odd.
But in your case, I am not a doctor, and I'm probably jumping the gun about that. If I were you, I would get to the doctor and find out what's really going on.
Literally there are many things it could be, and I would hate to think that you didn't go to the doctors. I don't know how old you are, but age can be a factor in this too. Hope this helps, good luck.
