Bulge near my groin

I recently discovered a bulging-type of protrusion on the left side of my groinal area adjacent to the genitals, near the pelvic bone. There is no pain when I push on it but should I be worried about this? Is this a hernia?? I also have IBS and didn't see a specific section relating to hernias.

Thanks in advance for your feedback.

Bob

Re: Bulge near my groin

Bob,

A bulge in this area can certainly be a hernia but it should be checked out by a Doctor!!! Hernias are usually assoiated with pain of some sort???

Take care---Harry

Re: Bulge near my groin

It is a hernia. I meet with the surgeon on Thursday for more info. Arthroscopic. . . is this an option and what can you tell me about it?

Thanks in advance. . .again.
