The only treatment for hernia is Surgery...called Herniotomy...I think you should get it done as early as possible to avoid complications..

Good Day
As far as I know an inguinal hernia/congenital hydrocele requires Surgery for certain. It is a short procedure and can be done with minimal complications and can ensure cure provided he takes adequate rest and avoids weight bearing for 3-4 weeks after surgery. Do not worry Sir, these surgeries are relatively safe and work the best.
