In brief: Bulge in the gron

Groin ( inguinal ) hernia presents as bulge, with pain or with out, progressively increases in size, no longer able to push it in, causing severe pain, ultimately leading to severe complications like obstruction and gangrene of bowel.

Many of my patients describe a "discomfort" or pressure feeling in the groin. A bulge that disappears by lying down and increases by standing up is common.

In brief: Bulge, Discomfort

Most people with a groin hernia become aware of one due to the presence of a bulge that protrudes with exertion.
This typically causes only mild discomfort, unless it becomes acutely incarcerated with intestine, at which point it can be very painful, and associated with nausea, vomiting, and abdominal distention. 9 times out of 10, if someone has severe groin pain, it's not a hernia.
