    Occult or hidden hernia?

    Please explain the exact blunt force trauma. Your story may be suggestive of a hernia. Where exactly is your pinching pain?

    Also, a physical exam which shows point tenderness in your groin where a hernia would be is a great start. If your surgeon can feel a hernia, or even elicit tenderness in the area, I would have your scans re-read. Or do a dynamic study where you are pushing out (ultrasound or MRI).
