Lump on left groin, swelling on exerting. Blood test, urine test normal. Ultrasound shows inguinal hernia. Causes for lump?

I have a lump in my left groin for few months. I had my ultrasound scan done but the result is uncertain as inguinal hernia . I had blood test , urine and physical check up but no sign of hernia. It s hurting me and causing discomfort. It swells when ever I stand for longer hours and exert pressure when lifting. I am a bit anxious about this lump. Please help. Thank you

Thanks for your query,based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have lump in left groin which increases in size on standing and hurts on lifting weight.

This is definitely Lt Inguinal Hernia and the lump that you feel is content of the sac either omentum or intestine .

Please note that hernia can not be cured with medicine ,Surgery is the only treatment option for inguinal hernia.

Please consult qualified general surgeon for examination and get operated at earliest..
