A 22-year-old man comes to the outpatient department with the complaint that occasionally, particularly when he stands or strains, a “bulge” appears in his right groin. Off and on, he has moderate pain in this area that is increased by activity, particularly lifting or straining hard during a bowel movement. He is otherwise healthy with no known allergies and is taking no medications.
