Pain near Groin

Hello Sir/Madam Whenever I am lifting something heavy, after a few minutes am sensing a pain in groin region, I personally suspect that as Hernia. Even my father also had similar problem but in his late 40's. As the problem for him became too heavy, he has undergone a surgery and doctors have removed that bulgy part. I am getting pain in the same region now, but I cannot sense any bulgy thing when I touch there. I want to know whether this type of hernia is hereditary? And one more thing is what precautions should I follow to get rid of this pain, as it is really difficult to avoid lifting some small weights like a bucket of water or what ever. Can this be cured with some medicine?

Groin pain may be a precursor for future hernia. But other causes like varicocele / muscle strain must be ruled out. Hernia occurs due to weakness in muscles which is aggrevated by lifting weights. You need ultrasound examination to confirm your problem. Till then don't strain or lift weight.
