Can an inguinal hernia cause blood in the semen?

Not likely: There should be no anatomical way that the hernia could cause bloody semen, although anything is possible. Bloody semen should be worked up by a urologist. ...Read more

Organs from within the abdominal cavity, such as the intestine, can protrude thru the hole and get stuck in the sac. Many hernias develop during fetal life and become evident in childhood or as an adult. Some develop following a prior abdominal operation. The cornerstone ...Read more

Can trace of blood appears in urine because of inguinal hernia? Sometimes while sitting have a dull pain around left scrotum.

Can trace of blood appears in urine because of inguinal hernia? Sometimes while sitting have a dull pain around left scrotum.

Not related: Trace of blood should be evaluated to rule out kidney, bladder or urethral problem. Dull pain in left scrotum can occur with varicocele (feels like bag "bag of worms" in left scrotum when standing erect). Your pain could be related to urethritis, which might also be responsible for blood trace. ...Read more

Last week i had open inguinal hernia surgery and had my incision glued together. How should the incision look by now. Mine looks red like dried blood on it, is this normal and how long is healing.

Last week i had open inguinal hernia surgery and had my incision glued together. How should the incision look by now. Mine looks red like dried blood on it, is this normal and how long is healing.

Can be normal: The repair of the hernia may have been repaired with a mesh to relieve the tension. The skin sounds like it was closed with a stitch that is absorbable. The glue on top of the skin may have a small amount of blood and can be normal. If you have redness outside incision, excessive pain, fever, or drainage call your surgeon's office for a visit. Healing 1+ month. ...Read more

I have been diagnosed with both a groin hernia and blood in the urine. Could the blood be related to the hernia ?

I have been diagnosed with both a groin hernia and blood in the urine. Could the blood be related to the hernia ?

Unlikely: Blood in the urine should be investigated promptly. It isn't normal--could be caused by a stone in the kidney or ureter, by infection, or even by cancer. A groin hernia is a weakness in the abdominal wall which allows soft tissue or part of the intestine to push through and cause a bulge in the groin. It does not involve the urinary tract. Don't delay having the hematuria checked out. ...Read more
