DR HASAN :

can you see it now?

Customer:

thats the exact area but only on the left side but its not that big at all , i could barely notice it in front of the mirror

DR HASAN :

Thanks a lot for your input.

DR HASAN :

Its likely to be an inguinal hernia.

DR HASAN :

It occurs because of weakening of abdominal wall.

Customer:

ok , what should i do ?

DR HASAN :

The other possibility can be of lipoma which collection of fatty tissue in this area but this is less likely.

DR HASAN :

You should see a general surgeon for this but you can start with your primary care physician.

DR HASAN :

But don't get stressed, its treatable.
