Inguinal Hernias and Pain with Erection

It started out as just scrotal pain but now I get a decent amount of pain with erections, mostly at the base of my penis.

I just got diagnosed with 2 hernias the other day but they are not even apparent to me.

I was wondering if anyone else has experienced or even heard of hernias causing pain with erection. I was not able to find anything on google but my doc says thats what it is. I am considering getting a different opinion before my surgery.

Thanks

Re: Inguinal Hernias and Pain with Erection

Of course it does - especially with double inguinal hernias. You may not feel the hernial because they are small abdominal wall cracks now, but as things become engorged with
each erection, the pressure builds, affects the fissures, and causes pain. Expect the hernias to tear further, and protrude as time lapses. Plan for a double inguinal surgery
ahead, and try to avoid constipation and lifting weights which will accelerate the tear.
