The most common hernias are inguinal (lower abdomen around the pubic bone) or umbilical (around the bellybutton). A femoral hernia is less common and occurs where the blood vessels enter the leg. When there is an external lump, it shows up in the upper front part of the leg. ...Read more

Is lower back pain common after inguinal hernia surgery? How long can that last?

Unusual: I haven't had many patients complain of back pain after inguinal hernia surgery. It may have been due to the positioning during surgery.

Swollen & painful lymph node in right groin area between pelvis and right thigh. Had it for ages but recently enlarged after vaccinations. What is it?

Swollen & painful lymph node in right groin area between pelvis and right thigh. Had it for ages but recently enlarged after vaccinations. What is it?

Regional adenopathy: For a young man with a history of STI I will rather investigate the possibility of another STI as the nodes in this region are commonly affected with such infections. Assessment of infection in the lower extremities and other more serious pathologies should be screened out. I will like to recommend a consult with Infectious Dse. MD in the network for continued evaluation. Take care. ...Read more

How concerning is a hernia in the groin?

How concerning is a hernia in the groin?

SomeMoreThanOthers: Inguinal hernias come in all shapes&sizes. The main issue "concerning" about hernias is the potential for intestine to get stuck (incarcerate) in the hernia; the blood supply could get cut-off, leading to intestinal death & the need for emergency surgery. The risk of this happening is dependent on the size & shape of the hernia; it is this factor & one's symptoms that guide our recommendations. ...Read more

Movable lump in right crease groin about olive size .pain in both knees and thigh comes and goes usually worse when siting for long periods. Cancer?

Movable lump in right crease groin about olive size .pain in both knees and thigh comes and goes usually worse when siting for long periods. Cancer?

Lymph node.: The movable lump in your groin is probably a lymph node. That size (olive, about 1cm) can be normal or abnormal, so it should be checked by a doctor. Your knee pain sounds like arthritis. I don't think the two are related. Since a lymph node like that can be related to cancer, get that checked right away. It's probably fine, but better safe than sorry! ...Read more

Does extended periods of sitting and bowl movements cause pain with a small Spigelian Hernia. How would this type of hernia cause back pain?

Possible: Hernia symptoms typically cause pain at the location of the hernia, a bulge at the same location, and if the intestines are herniated, could cause trouble with the GI tract such as crampy pain or some difficulty with bowel movements. If the bladder is involved, there could be difficulty urinating. Back is usually only caused by large hernias. Best to see a general surgeon for a consultation. ...Read more

39 yr fem. Diagnosed with inguinal hernia today. Very bothersome. Burning in vag area and pain going from hernia to thigh. Should i wait or repair?

Repair: A hernia such as yours results from a defect in the abdominal wall. Because of this defect or tear, "things" inside your abdomen (like intestines) will protrude through the defect. The risk is that, sooner or later, an organ , such as your intestine, will get stuck in this hernia.... Your situation has now become a surgical emergency. Inguinal hernias should be fixed. Yours, soon. ...Read more
