What can I do for my groin hernia without going to a doctor?

Little. A hernia in this area is a separation of the muscles and fibrous tissue which coats the abdominal cavity and keeps the intestinal loops within that cavity. The hernial opening will allow a loop to protrude which can be painful and in extreme cases can cause strangulation. A hernia truss can prevent this but is unpleasant to wear. Unless minor, you probably will need surgery. Read more...
