Does ingiunal hernias reduce penis size?

No.: Inguinal hernias will not change the size of the penis. If the hernia bulge is large, is can obscure the base of the penis making it appear shorter than it is, especially if the hernia is intrascrotal.

I hv left ingiunal hernia hv noticed penis size reduction as hernia  has emlarged?

Not to worry: Weight gain gives a man the impression of a smaller penis. As fat accumulates on the lower abdomen, the apparent size of the penis changes. "a large prepubic fat pad makes the penile shaft look shorter, " as we age the penis tends to undergo an actual (& irreversible) reduction in size (in both length & thickness). A hernia that is large can push on the prepubic fat pad and make penis look smaller. ...Read more

No: Operations for inguinal hernia repair have no effect on penis size unless there is a tragic complication. There is no reliable way to change your penis size for better or worse. The most common cause of perceived change in penis size is weight gain or loss. For each 10lb fat gain your penis can appear to be 1/2 inch shorter. For each 10lb loss you can gain an apparent 1/2 inch. ...Read more

How common are inguinal hernias in younger men?Also, would the location typically cause pain at the VERY base of penis (crevice area right near penis)
