In brief: Bulge & Discomfort

The most consistent symptom of an inguinal (groin) hernia is the presence of a bulge.
This may be constant but often enlarges with activity and may seem to go away after laying down. While hernias may cause pain, they usually cause subtle discomfort (also) worsened with activity. This pain may extend into the inner thigh due to nerve irritation.
