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!

Hurting in groin, bump or bulge hurts to walk or do physical activity what do you think?

Possible hernia: This could be a hernia which is a protruded bowel through an orifice in your muscle groin area. For confirmation needs to be checked and I would recommend you to visit your pcp.

30/m with severe pain in back behind ribs. Lasting for 3 months and getting worse. Progressive pain in groin. No bulge. Appointment in 2 wks. Causes?

Kidney or spine: Kidney problems like stones cause back and/or flank pain which radiates toward the groin. Do you have any urinary symptoms? Spinal pain does not usually radiate to the groin. If the pain becomes severe, you can always go to the emergency room for a quicker evaluation. Otherwise your physician will order the appropriate tests for diagnosis and treatment.

Pain, burning, discomfort. Right side groin can't really feel a bulge but is little hard when I press. Ice feels good when applied. Is this a hernia?

See a doctor...: Cannot tell here what you may have without a complete physical exam. See your primary care doctor for an examination. Hernias are commonly not seen or felt on examination of yourself by yourself, unless the hernia is somewhat large.

My son had an injury to his groin area, started with bad bruising, now just bulging lump in his groin area. What should I do?

Lump in Groin: All groin lumps should be examined by your health care provider. Causes: harmless (benign) cyst, hernia (usually a soft, large bulge in the groin on one or both sides) infections in the legs, injury trauma to the groin area. Lipomas (harmless fatty growths), swollen lymph glands in the groin.

Exam: A physical examination is the best way to tell whether not you have a hernia in your groin. This can be done by your primary care provider. On occasion, dynamic ultrasound or ct scan can help, but this is unusual.

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

From past 6 months I am experiencing on/off pain in left testicle. A bulge is also seen sometimes in groin. Shown to doc. Says no hernia, varicocele?

Ultrasound: Ask for an ultrasound of the testicle. If there is any mass it will be seen. The other possible diagnosis is a torsion but your pain comes and goes. The attachment of the testis on the sac may be lacking.

Left side lower back pain towards my butt that radiates up to the middle of my back and to my groin. Small bulge above hip that doesn't hurt or hard.

Left side lower back pain towards my butt that radiates up to the middle of my back and to my groin. Small bulge above hip that doesn't hurt or hard.

Common: Pelvic area pain can radiate up or down, and commonly to the groin. Bulging above the hip is classic for a twist in the pelvis. See a chiropractic doctor or a osteopathic physician for treatment you will do well. Ask about xrays if scoliosis is seen.
