Question: Hi, I am having very strong pain in my groin area i had a surgery about 6 mouths ago for a spermatic cord lipoma. (it was thought to be a hernia but when they did the surgery it was found to be a spermatic cord lipoma.) the pain i am having is the same pain i had pre-surgery. the pain had gone away for about 3 weeks then came back now the pain is so bad it stops my movements and i have to sit down in order for the pain to go away it comes with a very dull pain then it continues to hurt worst then about 30 seconds later the pain dies off. it happens when i run, stand still without movement for longer than 5 minutes, it hurts when i pick heavy things up, it will even hurt when i am laying down in bed. it has go to the point i cant hardly do what i used to do. I am a 17 year old male and i hope to find a fix to this problem are a solution until i can get to my doctor.
