In brief: Physical Exam Best

A hernia is a hole in the abdominal wall through which the inner layer of the abdominal cavity stretches thru, creating a sac.
The problem with ultrasounds (or even ct scans) is that they are usually done laying down; gravity and relaxation of the abdominal wall may allow the hernia to reduce and be missed. The best exam is done standing, with and without exertion. I recommend you see a surgeon.

In brief: Unsure

If you have changes in your structure of the abdomen and testicles you need to be checked.
Waiting can be very hazardous.
