Symptoms of an Inguinal Hernia

Usually pain associated with a bulge in the groin is the first sign of an inguinal hernia. It can be a sharp pain or an ache that gradually gets worse as the day proceeds. Signs that the hernia is entrapped or strangulated are tenderness, redness of the overlying sking, severe unceasing pain, and the bulge not being able to be reduced or pushed back in. These are serious symptoms that must be treated immediately.
