Does inguinal (groin) hernia causes testicular vein dilation or pain & swelling in testicular veins?

In brief: It could.

A large enough inguinal hernia can certainly cause testicular pain and can can cause scrotal swelling.
I imagine it might also compress or push on the pampiniform veins and exacerbate a clinical varicocele. This complex of symptoms certainly merits medical evaluation.

In brief: Hernia

Should not cause vein dilatation.
A varicocele which a clotting of some of the veins in the groin is usually the cause
