My pcp checked me for hernia last week then referred

My pcp checked me for hernia last week then referred me to a surgeon. I had hernia surgery 2yrs ago, where the surgeon used mesh to repair the hernia. My pain is on the same side as my first hernia. The surgeon checked me today and felt there was no hernia, and ordered a ct scan in avfew days. He seemed concerned though with my pain and it's location. The pain is directly over my first surgery site, it's deep and aching and travels down in my right testicle. I feel very nevous about what it could be, if it's not hernia. Are there any concerns of a mass or tumor or cancer? Is that why he ordered a ct scan? Also I've had 2 spinal fusions L4-S1 and a spinal stimulator implant in the last 3yrs. Any chance this issue could be related to my back issue? I'm 33yrs old... My apologies for all questions, but I'm concerned this is something more serious than what I thought...

Hello, Applying olive oil to the affected area of the leg. Olive oil is one of the best natural moisturizers which will instantly make the skin smoother and hydrated and all the itchy skin rashes will disappear.

The small itchy and bumpy red spots that cause skin rash on legs can also be treated by using another natural source for skin diseases i.e. Aloe vera. The gel from aloe vera is very beneficial for restoring the skin to its normalcy and natural shine along with curing the rashes. It is also helpful as it kills the bacteria in the skin rash that might aggravate the problem further. Aloe Vera gel also hydrates the dry skin rash.

Any mild moisturizer with vitamin E included can also be applied to legs. Vitamin E has anti-inflammatory properties; helps in softening and smoothening the skin.

In case of flakes due to skin rash on legs, a great natural and home remedy is an exfoliating paste made from oats and aloe vera gel. It can be made by mixing half cup of oats with a small amount of aloe vera gel (approx. 20 ml). A moisturizer or body lotion can also be mixed but it has to be very mild. Once this paste is ready, it should be applied to the affected part of the leg.
