Customer reply replied 8 years ago
groin pain varies
Doctor: Dr. Mark, Board Certified Physician replied 8 years ago
If it's an inguinal hernia , then the only solution for pain is surgical. A hernia can become incarcerated or estrangulated. You need to see a doctor as hernias can lead to serious problems if not properly treated.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
