In brief: Inguinal Hernia

A reducible inguinal hernia means that with pressure, it reduces or returns back into the abdominal cavity.
With standing, coughing, sneezing...it often returns to the outside and is visible and/or palpable again. One common point of view is that Inguinal hernias typically need surgery to prevent them from getting larger and more symptomatic. See a surgeon to see if yours needs surgery.
