Hi, and thanks for your query on eHealth forum!

If you have inguinal hernia and it is now not coming out and is giving pain and discomfort, then please get this examined by a surgeon.

Inguinal hernias can get trapped and cause more problems if not treated at the right time.

Please consult your healthcare provider for further guidance. This reply to your query is just for education and counseling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit and treatment by a doctor who can examine you. Hope this helped you in making an informed decision about your health. Take care!
