A member asked:

Is it possible for a right sided inguinal hernia to cause the right testicle to swell? this is before surgery and i am asking specifically about the testicle not necessarily the scrotum. thank you?

The testicle itself does not swell in an inguinal hernia. But if the hernia reaches the area it might appear to be swollen.
