A 35-year-old male asked:

Can a groin pull which leads to pain in the scrotum and a testicular trauma which lead to a groin pull cause inguinal hernia?

Inguinal Hernias: Yes. Of course. Any strain on the muscles in the inguinal canal can lead to hernia. The hernia is what usually causes the intra-scrotal symptoms if I am reading your question correctly.

Muscle strain: A "groin pull" is a strained or injured muscle that can cause groin and testicle discomfort. Muscle strains do not likely cause hernias. Many places on the body can get muscle strain injuries, and the muscle heals. Hernias can also cause groin and testicle pain. Needs a physical examination to tell which you may have.
