How Are The Characteristics Of Hernias?
Hello, I’m a 27-year-old man. I want to ask, in the bladder on the left side of my testicles there is a kind of intestinal muscle, and it feels very uncomfortable. Is that what is called a hernia?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The emergence of a mass such as muscle or intestine that feels uncomfortable around the left bladder (lower left abdomen) can indeed be caused by a hernia, or rather inguinal hernia. This inguinal hernia is a medical term used to describe a segment of the intestine sticking out through a weakened wall of the abdominal wall so that it protrudes into the groin area (close to the bladder). Clinically, the hernia will appear as a mass of soft consistency, and often swells especially when there is an increase in pressure in the abdominal cavity, for example when coughing, straining, or lifting heavy loads. When swollen, hernias can feel quite severe pain, it can even cause nausea, difficulty defecating, and of course can be very disruptive to activities.
Not only hernias, various other conditions may also play a role in triggering your complaints, such as varicoceles (swollen veins of the testicles), normal skin variations, skin infections around the lower abdomen, hydrocele, benign or malignant tumors, and so on.
You need to check your complaint directly to the doctor so that it is evaluated more deeply the potential causes. If it is true that the doctor suspects that the mass is from a hernia, the doctor can refer you to a surgeon for further treatment. Further tests, such as x-rays, ultrasound, and so on are usually needed to confirm the diagnosis.
In the meantime, we recommend that you do the following suggestions first:
Do not press, massage, or give any medication to complaints that arise Not always lifting objects that are too heavy Expand to drink and eat fruits and vegetables to prevent constipation (so you do not need to push excessively when defecating) Always use comfortable clothes and pants, don't be too tight If the area of complaint feels very uncomfortable, you can compress it first with warm water so that it feels better Maintain your ideal body weight, don't be too fat Hopefully it helps yes
