In brief: Variable

The most common presentation is of a bulge just below the groin crease, typically with little-or-no pain.
If intestine gets stuck in the hernia (strangulated), it can cause colicky abdominal pain, distention, and vomiting--this is a surgical emergency and requires immediate attention. We recommend elective repair of all femoral hernias due to the propensity for incarceration and strangulation.
