Swelling and bruising of the penis and scrotum are not uncommon following surgery for groin hernias, particularly when both sides are repaired at the same time. Unfortunately, however, I cannot examine your son. Therefore, it is best that his surgeon have a look to make sure that his recovery is proceeding as expected.
