2. Bulge in the Groin
Likewise, inguinal hernias can appear as bulges in the groin. This is the precise same process except the precise spot is slightly different, affecting the inguinal canal.
The inguinal canal is found near the groin and is the area the spermatic cord passes through from the abdomen to the scrotum. This cord is, among other things, responsible for holding up the testicles in men and the uterus in women.
This type of hernia as mentioned is most common in men and the reason for this is that a man’s testicles will descend after birth and in some cases, the canal will not completely close.
This leaves the area weakened and exposed to hernias, which is one reason they can occur with no obvious ‘trigger’.
