Hello, I have recently foumd somthing that is not a testicle in my groin. have reason to believe that it is a Hernia. Today while I was lifting I felt a bad pain in my leg and I'm not sure if that is related. Is a hernia able to go away in time without surgery? Please help me, I have no Idea what to do.
Welcome to the ehealthforum and thanks for posting on it.These symptoms can be due to inguinal hernia. It is a result of a weakness, tear, gap or opening in the muscle wall of the lower abdomen or groin through which the contents of the abdomen, such as intestine, may protrude through the muscle creating localized pain, pressure and a feeling of heaviness.
The other possibilities are of varicocele or hydrocele and hence i suggest you to get a physical examination and ultrasound done from a urologist.
It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
