In brief: Unusual

It can, but usually only if it is large, AND contains the bladder.
Best to get a consultation from a surgeon interested in hernia repair - you can find one at the Americas Hernia Society website. Hope this helps!

In brief: Yes, especially

If part of the bladder is incarcerated in the hernia sac.
More commonly, prostate hyperplasia can cause you to strain at urination, worsening the hernia condition. Have your surgeon take a look at your hernia.
