In brief: Bulge or lump.

A hernia will manifest itself as a bulge, most commonly in the groin or belly button region.
The bulge may be tender, is often reducible (either spontaneously or with direct pressure), and may be as small as a grape or as large as cantaloupe. In general, no bulge, no hernia.

In brief: Variable

A hernia in the abdominal wall is most commonly located in the groin or at the bellybutton.
Usually the patient can see and/or feel a lump and this may be painful. If you have any questions, get an examination by dr. To find out.
