Inguinal hernia. Old scar suddenly more visible

I had an inguinal hernia 9 years ago and it was repaired with surgery and a mesh.  I have a new hernia in almost the same place. My original scar has not been visible for a long time but all of a sudden the scar has reappeared and seems more pink than normal where the new hernia is.  Any cause for concern?  I wouldn't say the current hernia has changed colour... Usual flesh colour out than the old scar showing up again.  Thanks
