What can be the likely cause of pain in the right side of the abdomen around the fallopian tube area.
Not the hernia: Usually, the hernia itself is a defect in the abdominal wall. The wall is made of muscle and fascia, so the defect is just an opening in the sheet of muscle/fascia that is not normally there. Organs and items usually contained in the abdomen can 'poke out' through the abnormal opening ; can even get stuck. The hernia would not change positions, but the items poking out into the hernia could change. ...Read more

Femoral hernias come through the space next to the main blood vessels to the leg. Colelctively, this area is known as the myopectineal orifice.
