Hi guys

So, I think I have a minor hernia in my groin. I've been getting sharpish pains around that area (similar to when you're bursting to go to the toilet) and was fairly sore but couldn't pin point the exact area.

Anyway, having a wash last night and its really quite sore. I had a feel and there's a smallish lump, but its mostly very tender and sore to touch. Pretty sure I've got a minor hernia.

Has anyone had one before? Everywhere I read seems to suggest surgery but it's not a massive one, I can still function fine etc. Is it possible for these types of injuries to mend on their own?

I've being doing a lot of heavy dumbbell chest and shoulder presses so maybe pulled something during getting the weights into place.

Those links seem to suggest only surgery is the answer?

Thanks

I've had a smallish inguinal hernia since about 2008 but it doesn't hurt so I haven't sought medical intervention. It has probably grown ever so slightly but unless it gets a lot worse,I won't bother.
Training is not affected by it.

Looks like its all cleared up on its own (for now) luckily, so cancelled GP appointment.

No pain or lump at all anymore, touch wood Smiley
