Pain and Swelling in the Inguen (Inguen Hernia)

An inguinal hernia is a bulge that occurs in your groin region, the area between the lower part of your abdomen and your thigh. Inguinal hernias occur because of a weakening of the muscles in the lower abdomen.

An inguinal hernia could be a serious health problem, so don’t ignore symptoms like a pain in your groin when you cough or lift something heavy.  A physical exam is usually all it takes to diagnose the problem. If the hernia is large enough, you’ll need surgery to fix it.

Syptoms of  inguinal hernia :

  • Hurt when you cough, bend, or lift something heavy
  • Feel pressure, weakness, heaviness, or a dragging sensation in your groin
  • Have swelling around your testicles
  • Feel a burning or aching sensation at the hernia’s bulge
