Caption

Swelling in groin. Swelling due to a haematoma in the groin and genitals of a 67-year-old man three days after laparoscopic surgery to repair a hernia. A haematoma is an accumulation of clotted blood from ruptured blood vessels. The blood presses on the tissues, which can cause pain. A haematoma can be drained by a doctor, but usually clears up within a few days. A hernia is a weakness in the groin wall that allows structures from the body cavity to protrude. It commonly results in part of the intestine bulging through the inguinal canal, the passage through which the testes descend into the scrotum. Surgery replaces the intestine and repairs the body wall.
