  1. I have groin/lower abdomen discomfort since two months but there is no externally visible bulge on right side. USG reported a small bulge in inguinal region – could be an early inguinal hernia; but told that further test/evaluation is necessary. There is pain only in the time of bending/stretching or coughing but no bulge is coming out. Most of the times I feel there is continuous mild to moderate pulsation in inguinal region. What medicine should I take (dosage and duration)?
