In brief: Yes

If you have inguinal hernia of moderate size and even though no contents now, ( empty ) elective surgery advised most of the time for fear of incarceration, or careful observation.
.See your surgeon and decide.

In brief: Up to you

You only need hernia repair if it bothers you or causes pain.
Also as long as you have the hernia there's a risk of something getting stuck in it. If you are ok with the risk then you can hold off and wait on surgery.
