Hello --59 yr old male in good condition has inguinal hernia rt side. Has history of testicle torsion age 40. Doctor says leave hernia alone ???

It's Reversible: I agree with dr. Kimm's excellent answer. If your hernia is large enough to extend into your scrotal sac and obscure your penis, it's time to get that hernia repaired.

Surgery often does not help with this kind of pain unless it is due to intermittent trusts torsion in which case fixation of testis, to prevent twisting of spermatic cord, takes care of problem. Wish I could be of more help. ...Read moreSee 9 more doctor answers
