I don’t know if it is a good idea to fix groin hernia if patient has no discomfort. Myself was diagnosed with inguinal hernia two years ago and I had no discomfort at that time. I was suggested to fix it, and I did, with the consequence of severe and chronic pain after the surgery. Until now, I still don’t know why would I bother to do that and literally destroy my quality of life.
Net net, I think the rule of thumb is, the surgery should only be performed based on patient’s pain level and discomfort, along with physical examination to decide how bad it is and how urgent it needs to be fixed. Only the diagnosis of groin hernia shouldn’t be the reason for patient to get into the surgery.
