How is groin pull distinguished from sports hernia?On MRI both appear different?

How is groin pull distinguished from sports hernia?On MRI both appear different?

Different: A groin pull is a kind of generic catch all term that is not specific and can be any one of a number of things. It can be a pulled muscle, strained tendon or a ligament sprain. A hernia is a weak place in a muscle that allows something else (often intestine) to push out through the weakness. The appearance of the two would be very different on mri. ...Read more

How are a pulled groin and a hernia different?

Difficult: They can give you many of the same symptoms. Best to have an experienced md examine you. Rarely a study like cat scan may be necessary. Sometimes you have to wait and see if the pain goes away (strain) or whether a lump develops (hernia). This can take months to years. ...Read more

Felt pain in groin area starting a week ago. Throbbing,sharp pain.Went to doc to see if hernia or groin pull.He said "it's a week spot"-sched ultra.Y?

Groin Pain: Assuming a patient can schedule an ultrasound for groin pain means they were given a script for it, therefore advised to get one. Ultrasounds are a very benign diagnostic form of testing. If the pain has not resolved on It's own nor relived by over the counter medication like ibuprofen and a muscle rub, further investigation is warranted. ...Read more

Prostate inflammation/infection, tumors/cyst, trauma or irritation of nerve to testicle. If not better or worse after 2 weeks ask to be evaluated by a physician urologist. ...Read more

I have a knott under my skin inner thigh right testical hurts could this be a hernia or a pulled groin?

Epididymitis: Signs/sxs appear to be epididymitis of the testis, or orchitis. You need a scrotal ultrasound and possibly antibiotics. An incarcerated inguinal hernia, beyond pain and a knot, will eventually cause a bowel obstruction, which doesn't sound like your issue. ...Read more

Wat are the symptoms for recurrence off inguinal hernia i pulled my old surgery and the area is sore but no pain like my 1st hernia ?

Wat are the symptoms for recurrence off inguinal hernia i pulled my old surgery and the area is sore but no pain like my 1st hernia ?

FeelsLikeThe1stTime: A recurrent inguinal hernia will manifest itself as a bulge in the groin, not unlike any inguinal hernia. It is usually a gradual process so there is no sign of trauma like bruising. Surgical rx can be a little tricky the 2nd time around--as a general trend, if it was fixed one way the 1st time (open), we tend to recommend the alternate (laparoscopic) the 2nd time. ...Read more

I had right inguinal hernia surgery in 2010, burning, numbness and feeling of my cord being pulled by mesh, does mesh need to be removed?

Possibly.: Please revisit the surgeon who performed the surgery, if possible, for further recommendations, especially since your surgery was 4 years ago. If these are new symptoms, it may have moved or post-op adhesions may be bothering you. It is unusual for burning and numbness of the skin to occur 4 years after surgery. There may be a new process going on. ...Read more

Had inguinal hernia surgery 16 days ago. Have what feels like a pulled muscle above and to the left of the incision area on left side. Is this normal?
