I've had a lump by my bellyboutton and it moves around its been a week now could I have a hernia? I've been constapated too? Or pregnancy had neg test

Could be a Hernia: Unclear what you mean by "it moves around". Hernias manifest themselves as bulges that often "yo-yo" in-and-out depending on activity. However, a hernia does not "float" or move from one location to another. I have a simple way for you to get to the bottom of this--please see your primary care doctor or gyne for a formal exam and possible surgical referral. Good luck! ...Read more

I had a hernia repaired a month ago now I have hard lumps around the area, is this normal?

Probably okay: You are in the early stage of recovery – only one month out. Suture material and/or mesh are used in your hernia repair. You should not be able to feel the mesh, but you may be noticing tissue reactions to the underlying suture material. This should go away over time as the sutures absorb. Usually takes 12 to 16 weeks. Be patient and follow your doctor's directions. ...Read more

My left testicle is swollen with a dull ache now and then. Can feel no lumps. My dad has had a hernia before. Could this b the start of a hernia?

My left testicle is swollen with a dull ache now and then. Can feel no lumps. My dad has had a hernia before. Could this b the start of a hernia?

Swollen testicle: If your testicle is swollen because of a hernia, it would not be the start of a hernia. Before a hernia reaches the testicle, it would have to travel through the groin canal to get there. Usually, men are aware of that well before it reaches down to the testicle. I believe, you will need to see doc to have him look at your testicle. ...Read more

Rectal: Rectal hernias are very rare. They are often confused with hemorrhoids. Rectal prolapse is a possibility (rectum protruding through the anus). Regardless. You need to see your doctor right away for an evaluation. If you still have the pain and pressure and you are unable to see your doctor present to your local urgent care or er. ...Read more

After a hernia operation is there normally a lump?

Yes: There is normally a lump under the incision that we commonly refer to as the "healing ridge". This represents the inflammatory phase of wound healing, and resolved on its own by about 6-8 weeks. The lump could also be a fluid collection under the skin called a seroma - also normal and self limited. If however you think the lump is the hernia, call your surgeon asap. ...Read more

Best to get it checked out by your primary care provider. Sometimes need a ct scan or ultrasound to make the diagnosis. Occasionally, a surgical procedure is needed to make the diagnosis.
