My son is 5+ years old. When he is around 6 months old he had a problem of constipation and after 1 year I found he had inguinal hernia on left side. So he get operated when he was 2 year old but now I find that on his right side of penis there is bit bulge. I do not know whether its hernia again or something else.
Is it possible that inguinal hernia will come again on opposite side?
No other symptoms till now.
What do I do? I get very scared when I think of all that phase of my son operation. Help me please.
