I had a right inguinal hernia repair with mesh plug and patch. I developed back pain that caused by my psoas and piriformis muscles that are always in?
Hard to connect: Psoas and piriformis are quite far away from the inguinal hernia repair. More likely to be separate pathology. Need more investigation into back. ...Read more

Does someone who has pulled a groin muscle which leads to pain in scrotum go on to develop an inguinal hernia in later life?
I have an inguinal hernia & have severe groin pain & surgery in Jan. Should I go on a long-haul flight to a 3rd world country now or postpone?
Neither will cure: Umbilical hernias in babies ; very young children mostly resolve on their own. Otherwise surgery is required to cure a hernia. Hernias are due to protrusion of tissue through a defect in muscle or fascia. Indirect inguinal hernias are due to failure of peritoneal protrusion to close spontaneously after birth. Trusses may temporize. Neither manipulation or any medication can correct hernial defects. ...Read more

Inguinal hernia or muscle bulge? I am a 22 year old female, about january I have had a little hard bulge along my right external oblique what would be the "v" muscle... Its about the size of a thumb print. I decided just to ignore it because it didn't hur
A: A bulge in your abdominal wall that comes out when you cough or sit up and then goes back down when you lay down sounds very concerning for a hernia. You need to see a general surgeon and have them look at it and see what they think. The ultrasound is ok if you've already been scheduled, but it isn't always going to be accurate in diagnosing a hernia. Even if the u/s comes back saying that a hernia isn't seen, it doesn't mean you don't have one. Hernias are one of the most common conditions that a surgeon sees and most people still think that a physical exam done by a surgeon is the best way to diagnose whether or not you have a hernia. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Had groin hernia surgery with mesh in (07, 08) mesh had to be removed it failed (2010). Groin pain again & in leg. Feel a lump in groin. Is it a hernia?
I have a lump that bulges out in my groin area. I believe this is inguinal hernia. But however I don't seem to have any pain at all. Why is this so?
In an operation for appendicitis, is the incision made in the groin? Does it increase the chances of developing an inguinal hernia?
No risk: There is not a groin incision made for operation to take out the appendix. For an open technique an incision is made in the right lower quadrant of the abdomen, but well above the groin. For laparoscopic technique, there are usually three incisions, one at the belly button, one above the pubic bone, and one in the left lower quadrant of the abdomen, all of which are away from the groin. Hope this helps! ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
How do you know if you have swollen lymph nodes in the groin vs an inguinal hernia? What differentiates the two?
See a doctor: Have a physical exam. Very difficult for you to tell, but in general a lymph node may be tender & it would be fixed & firm and not go away when laying down or resting. Hernia often softer, located in a different position than a lymph node & usually goes away when you lay down. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
I had inguinal hernia surgery w/ mesh 6 months ago. Now I have a pulling sensation in my groin. Saw my surgeon twice, he says it feels okay. Any ideas?
Time will heal: The mesh material can move very slightly, but this can cause pain. Usually the pain lasts for about 3 days and then subsides. If your doctor did not feel that the hrnia came back...Then you should be ok. Take Motrin or another ant-inflamatory agent but ask your doctor first so that you do not have a drug interaction. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
