Please let me know if there is any treatment for inguinal hernia in a child of 2.5 years other than surgical method?

In brief: Hernia

No. Inguinal hernias are not benign.
Of course most do not create problems. You should go get it repaired. It is a very easy procedure.

In brief: There is not.

Surgery is the best treatment and is a fairly simple outpatient procedure with a high success rate.
Putting it off risks complications like incarceration with loss or damage to the testicle. It is best to choose a surgeon who does the procedure on children many times a year like a general pediatric surgeon or pediatric urologist. Many general surgeons or urologists will also qualify.
