What does it mean to have a hernia in the groin area like bulge sac?

What does it mean to have a hernia in the groin area like bulge sac?

Inguinal Hernia: Inguinal, or groin hernias are very, very common (in men). If the hernia is small and not interfering with your daily activities, it is acceptable to take a "wait-and-see" approach. If not, hernia surgery is advised; this is an outpatient operation that can be performed "open" or via laparoscopy, typically with mesh. I recommend that you see a general surgeon for a formal evaluation. Good luck! ...Read more

I have a lump on each groin at the top it doesn't bulge out but I can feel it?

I have a lump on each groin at the top it doesn't bulge out but I can feel it?

Watch and wait: What you feel may be fibrosed lymph nodes from past infections in the feet or legs. It the lumps are stable you may let it be. You may feel the nodes every couple of weeks, if the lymph gland doubles in size, becomes painful, ulcerates, or other nodes become enlarged, or you develop fever, or lose weight, you should see a doctor.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more

I hump my pillow with my penis down and place two pillows underneath my stomach and penis! I now notice a bulge on the left side of my groin area?

Here are some...: Hi! RafaelS, Your acts with two pillows very unlikely have a direct connection with a bulge in left groin. If not having systemic symptoms like fever & general tiredness, it is reasonable to just watch & wait to see if this bulge may change in its size or produce pain. Also, take a look at whole external genitalia (sac and penis) so to assure no any local lesion/ erosion. If worse In 3-5 days, see ...Read more

I have been diagnoised with three bulging discs in lower back, along with stenosis of spine, but the pain in my groin and pelvic area is getting as bad as my lower back, my dr. Recommends pt, should I request another mri, I had one a yr. Ago.?

Note: if pain is severe or you are having sensory symptoms or weakness, an MRI is indicated. ...Read more
