An inguinal hernia occurs when tissue, such as part of the intestine, protrudes through a weak spot in the abdominal muscles. The resulting bulge can be painful, especially when you cough, bend over or lift a heavy object.
An inguinal hernia isn't necessarily dangerous. It doesn't improve on its own, however, and can lead to life-threatening complications.
•A burning or aching sensation at the bulge
•Pain or discomfort in your groin, especially when bending over, coughing or lifting
•A heavy or dragging sensation in your groin
