Mass at inguinal region may be due to hydrocele or recurrence of the hernia. Until examination is done it is difficult to say what it is.

Get it done ultrasound abdomen and local examination. Then consult your surgeon he will examine and treat you accordingly.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Hi, I had a ct scan yesterday due to side pain, and I was told it came back negative for any masses. I was told that I had a tiny umbilical hernia and that was it. They didn t say I needed surgery or to worry about it, but after doing research on the internet about it, I m a little concerned, since it says most adults need surgery to fix it and if you want to get pregnant, you should have it fixed before then. I do not have any pain around my belly button, just some left pain side. Should I not worry and just keep an eye on it? Is it safe to do abdominal workouts?Thanks.

I have had two inguinal hernia surgeries, one at age 5 and another at age 12. I have been tested there is no sperm in my semen. Every other hormone level is normal and every other test has been normal. I believe there is a blockage. My question is, If I go several consecutive days without ejaculation My scrotum begins to swell and I have a dull and sometimes intense pain in my testicle and also in my area around my pubic bone. I thought it may be vasocongestion but isn't that supposed to go away after a few hours? The pain lasts until my next ejaculation.
