Are swelling and pain in the groin area signs of hernia?
Still may be hernia
hi and welcome.
There are few possible causes.
this can still be hernia which is noticeable only at time of raised intrabdominal pressure such as cough,long standing,running etc. also,this could be intermittent varicocele which is actually spreading of cord vessels due to increased venous flow in testicles. third,ligaments and muscles may be cause but this is not common. To establish right diagnosis ,you should do ct scan ,or mri. ultrasound is not specific enough for such symptoms. Wish you good health. Regards
you are worrying unnecessarily
Yes, you are concerned with no reason.
This doesnt sound like a serious condition. It is common to have assymmetric testicles or cord or cysts in epididymis. Also, cremaster muscle may be thicker at one side or may consist of cyst. I dont think that any treatment is required. Do follow up ultrasound in 2-3 months and nothing else needs to be done. Wish you good health. Regards
