Get to the Doctor: Please. Sign off this app and get to the doctor today. Hernias can expand and intestines fall into the scrotum. Hernias can expand and limit the blood supply to the testicles leading to the death or damage to the testicles. Please get to the family clinic urgently.

Both can co-exist: Worth having a bilateral inguinal hernia/hydrocele repair at your age. Good luck.
