Hello
Inguinal hernia doesnt cause the symptoms you have described.There may be a penile infection which can be sexually transmitted so you will need treatment for that.

I think I had an inguinal hernia that I thought went away by itself until I noticed my left labia minora dramatically grow in size. Is it possible to have a hernia end up in your labia minora causing a bulge. I am in my twenties and got an inguinal hernia a few years back when I was younger as a gymnast and never told anyone. My labia minora was always a normal size but as soon as my hernia dissappeared I noticed my left labia minora (same side as hernia) became significantly larger. Before I see a dr I needed to know if it is possible for a hernia to move to that area.

Greetings Doc, I am 30 years old male, around 6 feet tall & weighing 90Kgs. Of late i have started feeling a split second numbness sensation around my throat & face/ blackout sensation while swallowing saliva alone. It s not there while swallowing food/chewing anything or even drinking water. It s like something has got stuck to my upper throat.

Kindly advise. P.S: I am a regular smoker - Upto 20 Cigs a day or more.
