|I noticed coming out of the shower about 4 weeks ago that one side of my pubic area was a bit larger than the other. There was no pain or discoloration...I began watching this area quite a lot, so I've noticed...
[list]gets smaller or entirely back to normal when lying down.
still no pain
I feel a pressure in my scrotum, on the right side - same side as hernia
don't recall any event as causing this small bulge
I've seen our regular doctor - he wrote a referral to a surgeon, but I'm not wild about surgery...the cost, and what I've heard about years of pain afterward, and a fair number of re-herniations.
As I'm dealing with fear, worry concern, etc, I wonder how I can evaluate where I am until I can get some more (better) advice about what to do about it.
I'm on-board with the idea of non-surgical methods of healing this.
thanks for any thoughts
