I have pain and sorenes in balls i lift 50-80lb box everyday my groin area is very hard hernia?

This could be hernia: This very well could be a hernia. At first abdominal contents can push through the weakness or defect and then return spontaneously. However, these contents which may be bowel, omentum, bladder can get stuck ( incarcerated) and progress to strangulation where the viscera are damaged because the blood supply is compromised. This is a true emergency requiring surgery. ...Read more

My boyfriend has a hernia in his groin area. I am concerned because i want to go to nyc this christmas. Would it be safe for him to get in a plane?

Yes: A hernia becomes a problem when it becomes incarcerated, in other words, something becomes trapped in the hernia and cannot squeeze out of the hernia sac. This is usually self evident with pain, vomiting and abdominal pain. As long as the contents of the hernia can be pushed back, i.e. Reduced, then it should not be a problem. Nevertheless, it would behoove him to see a general surgeon to fix. ...Read more

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

Genetics: A groin hernia is when the natural openings in the abdominal wall (through which pass the spermatic cord on men and the round ligament in women) stretch out, and allow other abdominal contents to herniate through. While it can be brought on by coughing, or other sudden increase in abdominal pressure, it is also due to happen more often in those susceptible based on their genetics.
