Customer Question

I'm about to set off today weeks in Sri Lanka and have a swelling on one side of my groin. It's soft and doesn't hurt so I'm wondering if it's a hernia. I'll check with a GP when I get back but is there any other advice you'd give?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Hernia is a possibility with what you are describing I agree

Dr. Shahzad MD :

So I would like that you should have it checked.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Even if it is a hernia and it is not causing you any symptoms, you can travel with the hernia.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

If you can attach a picture here of the swelling that would be nice. It would give a better idea.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Let me know if you have more questions.
