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
