Was it actually Hernia?

Hello. I was told that I had Hernia around 8 years back during a check up. I had swelling in my right testicle. I was told to undergo a surgery when the Hernia would start hurting me but the day never came. It's been around 8 years and it neither hurts nor is it growing any bigger, rather it has shrank a little. Researching a bit about the complications, I found that Hernia could even result in death. What should I do now? Has it cured itself since it isn't growing any bigger or should I still consider having a surgery? Thank you.

Re: Was it actually Hernia?

A hernia doesn't heal itself. It may get smaller, but it doesn't go away without surgery. Please get back into your doctor and see what he suggests. This is something that you should take care of. It could get worse...
