10d since my open inguinal hernia repair. A painless, hard lump, like a thick cord has appeared in my scrotum (side of incision). What could it be?

In brief: Here are some ...

At times, some hardening along spermatic cord resulting from some local blood infiltration after hernia repair may occur and takes time to resolve slowly.
if not resolved in 2-3 months, seek pro-evaluation for confirmation and counseling.
