If there was hernia present in the testicle, wouldn't I be in pain? Wouldn't I feel pain in the abdomen if intestine goes through ab wall?

Hernias that cause pain, or are trapped, need surgical repair. See your surgeon. ...Read more

It becomes noticeable when you tense the abdominal wall muscles. This is not a serious condition.

In an inguinal hernia, does a small part or the whole lower abdomen protrude?

Bulge in Groin: All inguinal hernias begin as small holes in the groin, usually evident as a subtle bulge that, in time, can enlarge and extend into the scrotal sac. Of course, neglect and time can lead to some very large hernias, but, in my experience, they usually extend down into the scrotal sac rather than lead to protrusions of the entire lower abdomen. ...Read more
