In brief: Seroma

This fluid collection is almost certainly a seroma and is normal.
May take several weeks to months to resolve. If there is a significant portion that is blood, it may not resolve, but time will tell. You should also address this at your follow up visit with your surgeon.

In brief: See your surgeon

Post-operatice swelling in the groin after laparoscopic inguinal hernia surgery is common a resolves on its own over several weeks.
It is of no consequence & does not matter if it is just normal tissue sweloing or small seroma. Both resolve on their own.
