In brief: Pain and/or lump

Usually pain or discomfort, often associate with a lump felt under the skin.
Chronic pelvic pain is also a possibility, but very difficult to tell for sure, as there are many causes i pelvic pain in women.

In brief: Similar to Men

While hernias are much more commen in men, women have similar signs and symptoms.
In the groin, femoral hernias are more common in women; this may create a lump in the upper/inner thigh. Furthermore, a bulge may be evident in the labia. Abdominal wall hernias (umbilical, epigastric, spigelian, etc) will be the exact same.
