Diagnosis Of A Lump In The Groin In The Adult

Although the distinction between femoral and inguinal hernias is difficult enough for practising surgeons, the clinical distinction between indirect and direct inguinal hernia is correct in little more than 50% of cases even in experienced hands. Even the position of fixed landmarks such as the midpoint of the inguinal ligament and the mid inguinal point cannot be accurately distinguished. Every groin lump should be carefully evaluated and hernias must be distinguished from other lesions.
