One side inguinal hernia the size of an apple, non-reduceable, what is best for me? Mesh no mesh, lapro, open, should rice, suggest other? Which anesthesia? Thanks

Depends: It depends on many factors including your weight, motivation for local anesthesia, and hernia details. Sounds like it will be difficult under local because it is not reducible. Choice between lap and open is up to you, but most surgeons don't do lap, or have little experience with lap. ...Read more

It is the size of another testes. Soft. Unattached. Am 61yo. Had this for 5 years. Have inguinal hernia Got worse after 3 week cough from cold?

Ask Magilla Gorilla: I saw something like that today, only in a gorilla. No, just kidding. Ultrasound showed it to be what's called a "spermatocele, "a benign sack of fluid and sperm (think of it as a reserve tank...). Of course that hernia could be lurking in there too, or some other cause for that lump. Get them checked out. And when you cough, press on the hernia so it won't pop out.

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 more
