What does burning sensation in inguinal hernia mean?

Nerve irritation. A common symptom associated with inguinal (groin) hernias is a burning sensation overlying the groin and/or the thigh. This is due to the hernia pushing up against the nerves that innervate these areas. While rarely disabling, this symptom will go away after hernia repair.
Depends. You have a symptomatic inguinal hernia. As long as you can push it back in, it is not an emergency. Symptomatic inguinal hernias should be fixed.
