Thank you @drtowfigh.
My valsalva protocol 3T MRI (1 year after robotic inguinal hernia repair on my left side & ProGrip mesh implant) states that there is fat in my left inguinal canal which is “stable” “without evidence of inducibility.”
Is this different from a “spermatic cord lipoma”? (It seems as though a lot of terminology is used…[Read more]
Hopefully, @drtowfigh can let us know (1) how fat gets into the inguinal canal, (2) the clinical significance of a lipoma in the inguinal canal with the abdominal Wall intact, (3) should lipoma (fat) in the inguinal canal be treated and, if so, how?

Do you know if inguinal canal fat lipomas are benign? I know @drtowfigh has stated that fat in the inguinal canal can result in pain. Is this true even if the abdominal wall is intact?
According to the MRI report, the “stable fat in the inguinal canal without…[Read more]
Pelvic MRI per @drtowfigh 3T valsalva protocol (1 year after robotic inguinal hernia surgery for direct defect implanted with ProGrip mesh) revealed “stable fat in inguinal canal with no evidence of inducibility”
Can you please interpret this impression for me.
