About a year ago, I started the process of foreskin restoration. I fear that I may have tugged too hard on the shaft skin using the device. Slowly I started to develop a pain in my upper groin (seems to mostly come from slightly above the testicles). It is mostly on the left side, but occasionally also on the right. It is usually a dull type of pain. I stopped tugging, but a year later the pain is still present (although not as bad). I went to the doctor, and they thought a possible hernia. I had an ultrasound and they determined there may be a "small amount of fat pushing through." The surgeon wouldn't do anything because if there is a hernia there, it's incredibly small and surgery could make it worse. I'm not convinced that it's a hernia anyways.
Is there anything else this could be besides a hernia?
