How can I treat a groin hernia?

Get an operation!: A hernia repair is the only way to make this better. This is done by a surgeon. Although you could wait and see, the hernia definitely won't get any better, and will probably get worse. Today we do hernias laparoscopically, which get you back to work faster and hurts much less. You should look for a surgeon who repairs hernias this way.

No alternative: Surgery is your only answer..Sorry. It is a hole, can stay the same size or get bigger, will never disappear without surgery.
