I had an ultra sound today and was told I have an hernia in the abdomen,  right side low near groin. Is surgery usually necessary to repair? I

Possibly: Small, asymptomatic inguinal hernias in men can be safely watched. Repair only needs to be done if it is causing a problem. There are many excellent surgical options once the hernia needs repair including an endoscopic repair that avoids cutting any muscle in the groin. ...Read more

Once in a while I get moderate to severe pain on the right side of my abdomen area, but ice or cold in general seem to help a lot. Could still be something serious like appendicitis, hernia or ulcer?

Once in a while I get moderate to severe pain on the right side of my abdomen area, but ice or cold in general seem to help a lot. Could still be something serious like appendicitis, hernia or ulcer?

No: Something serious on the right side of your abdomen wouldn't go away with ice or cold. It sounds more like a muscle pain in the abdominal wall if it happens occasionally and goes away with cold. See your PCP to know for sure what is going on but serious things don't generally go away that easily. Hope this helps. ...Read more
