See MD: You need to see your doctor and have a urine check and a digital rectal exam to check your prostate. Make sure you are having normal bowel function daily and that the sharp pain in not gas associated. Good luck.

Could be hernia: Inguinal hernia is a hole in abdominal wall where intestines can sneak through. Normally the spermatic cord and blood supply to the testicles comes through the abdominal wall in this location. A hernia enlarges this exit/hole. Bowel can get stuck in a hernia which can lead to er visits and emergency situations. An elective inguinal hernia repair is safe, effective and durable.
