In brief: Bulge
The most common finding is a bulge in the area.
Sometimes it stays out or you can push in and out.

other times you will have pain that radiates to the upper inner thigh or the testicle, like an electric shock

In brief: How does hernia feel
At the groin or inguinal area, a hernia can feel like a bulge that comes and goes.
When the bulge is there, it can be tender, and if you push on it, especially from your leg towards your belly button, the bulge can slip inside. Absent fever, severe pain, feeling sick, most hernias can be managed as an outpatient surgical procedure.
