Husband has been experiencing testicular pain on the right, on and off, not excruciating but it has been getting his attention. Sometimes it radiates into the abdomen on the right, diagonally up from his testicle. He often feels the need to “support” his testicle and it feels better. He has not felt a bulge or lump come out of his groin, i.e. hernia, but has sometimes felt what he describes as “piece of twine” in his groin area. Family doctor said it’s a hernia, but we are getting a second opinion because no bulges have been noticed. Any answers?
Dear, There is probability of inflamed spermatic cord down to testis also. Some time the hernias sac does not descend fully to scrotum, but if piece of twine increase in size on coughing then most probably it might be hernia. You can take second opinion to clear your doubt. Use scrotal support. Take care.
