I have been diagnosed with both a groin hernia and blood in the urine. Could the blood be related to the hernia ?

In brief: Unlikely

Blood in the urine should be investigated promptly.
It isn't normal--could be caused by a stone in the kidney or ureter, by infection, or even by cancer. A groin hernia is a weakness in the abdominal wall which allows soft tissue or part of the intestine to push through and cause a bulge in the groin. It does not involve the urinary tract. Don't delay having the hematuria checked out.

The blood in the urine is unrelated to the hernia.See your medical doctor for the blood in the urine as soon as possible.

In brief: No

A groin (inguinal) hernia is not associated with hematuria or blood in the urine.
