In brief: Different Exam
An inguinal hernia is a hole in the groin muscles thru which a sac may protrude through, occasionally extending into the scrotal sac, next to the testicle.
A testicular cancer presents as a growth within the testicle. These two abnormalities can be easily differentiated from one another by a careful physician examination.
