what problems can inguinal hernias cause..I have two, one on each side?

Pain and a lump : Inguinal hernias typically cause pain or discomfort of varying levels. Left untreated, there is a low likelihood they will get worse.

What anesthesia is used for people with inguinal hernias?

A variety: Depending on the patient, surgeon (and planned repair), anesthesiologist, and practice setting, inguinal hernia repair may be performed under local, regional, or general anesthesia. You should ask your surgeon if the operation will require a specific anesthetic, or if you and your anesthesiologist can decide.

Hernia inguinal help!! my hernia is about the size of a jordan almond can I fix it, what to do?

In general, types of repair are open or laparoscopic. About 75-80% of repairs in the US are done open.
