      Has anyone had a hernia in there lower abdomen but not down so far as the groin but near the pubic area? Many times I think it is being diagnosed as cysts or a female issue? Anyone relate?

      Hernia in lower left quadrant but groin

      These figures are from a great article by Dr Deborah Metzger, who has since retired.

      Basically, the pain from ovaries are usually higher and deeper than hernia pain. Also, hernia pain tends to radiate. See the hashed areas.
