What are the most common physical symptoms in an individual with a suspected Inguinal abdominal wall disruption (Sportsman's Hernia)?


Physical symptoms include a dilated superficial ring on palpating , a positive cough impulse and tenderness on the affected side.

The size of the Inguinal ring though is not a watertight physical sign, as a tight Inguinal ring may suggest the absence of an Inguinal abdominal wall disruption.

Exploratory surgery has often refuted the reliability of this test, with indications of early hernia-type changes in the external oblique and posterior wall.
