Can you have a scrotal hernia without having an abdominal or groin area hernia? I thought the scrotal involvement was just a worsening of the others
?pseudo hernia: Your are correct that most scrotal involvement in hernias results from progressive movement of the inguinal hernia into the scrotal sac. However, there is a condition wherein the left testical has a varicocele wherein the venous return from the testical is blocked by the renal artery, causing swelling that appears as if it were a hernia.

Does ascites fluid leak into the groin area after a hernia repair if you have cirrhosis with ascites.

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.

Nevertheless, it would behoove him to see a general surgeon to fix. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
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.

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. Hope this helps! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Harder to fix: The bigger they are, the harder they are to repair. It will never improve without repair, and more than likely continue to enlarge, I have seen them the size if a football. Additionally, if he waits until the symptoms become more severe, he may need emergency operation, which is riskier that planned operation. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
