Testicular pain: Hernia related pain can occur at any time. In your sons case iy seems to be postional, worsening when he lays down. However, all testicular pain must be checked out. I wouldn't waste any time. I recommend consulting with you doctor. ...Read more

Hello --59 yr old male in good condition has inguinal hernia rt side. Has history of testicle torsion age 40. Doctor says leave hernia alone???

Wrong advise: As far as I know if you have a symptomatic inguinal hernia it needs to be repaired. The fact that you had a history of torsion it does not change that fact.
I watched last week a sick 70 years old with a strangulated hernia die because surgery was too risky.
my believe if you are healthy enough to have an elective surgery have it before it becomes life threatening and kill you.
ask for 2 opinion. ...Read more

I have a pain in my groin area and it iscaused by a wrong position while making squats in the gym. Should I stop for a while? Could it be a hernia?

Muscle strain/hernia: It could easily be a stringed muscle which would benefit from rest, nsaids, and warm compresses. A hernia, however, is not uncommon and should be ruled out by getting examined by your physician. ...Read more

When is surgery required for an umbilical hernia? My 15 month old still has one. He had hernia surgery@2months for hernias in his groin area.

When is surgery required for an umbilical hernia? My 15 month old still has one. He had hernia surgery@2months for hernias in his groin area.

Maybe never!: 95% or more of umbilical hernias resolve by 4 years old. If it hasn't resolved by then, your child's doctor can refer you to a surgeon. Tape, belly bands, and quarters ('family remedies') actually tend to prevent umbilical hernias from resolving. Unless intestine gets strangulated in the hernia, best to leave it alone for now. ...Read more

I noticed a tender grape sized ball in my upper thigh area (near groin). I am a 19 year old female. Is it possible that this may be a femoral hernia?

Unlikely: If you can feel a distinct size, like a grape, it retains the same size no matter how you push on it, the chance of it being a hernia is remote. Most of these peanut to grape sized structures are benign lymph notes that are often noticed in the fold of the groin. ...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
