    Goldenmsc – An inguinal hernia is a hole in the abdominal wall in the groin area through which abdominal contents can pass, and cause pain, discomfort and a bulge. A sports hernia is a term used for a variety of conditions that cause groin pain such as a muscle tear, tendonitis, hip or back problems, and sometimes even an inguinal hernia. Since hernia represents only one cause of groin pain in athletic individuals, the diagnostics usually include an MRI for sports hernia, and not for a straight forward inguinal hernia. Hope this helps!
