Inguinal hernia: Which was decompressed at time of sonogram. Is likely diagnosis. It is an emergency if you can't push it back. Need to go to er if can not be pushed back as this could be an incarcerated hernia. See general surgeon, if it can be pushed back. Sonograms are not reliable to detect decompressed inguinal hernias.
