What are the symptoms of a hernia?
The symptoms of a hernia may include discomfort or pain usually with straining or physical activity, a bulge that may be felt and/or seen, and a heaviness or tugging sensation in the groin. Occasionally, there may be no symptoms and your doctor may notice a hernia during a routine physical exam or a scan performed for another reason.
