You may post a picture, if comfortable.

Were an ultrasound or any other investigations done?

Hello Arie,

I am writing you an initial answer.

Once you are online we may discuss it further.

Expert:  Dr. Arun Phophalia replied 12 days ago.

You may have inguinal hernia.

An ultrasound will confirm the diagnosis.

Surgery is usually advised especially if it causes pain and discomfort.

I would be happy to assist you further if you need more information.
