I know this is probably been asked before. I'm scared and trying to find out what I can. My husband is a delivery driver who works all day long delivering large packages (heavy lifting, a lot of walking). He had a lump develop near his groin. He assumed it was a hernia. His company sent him to their doctor. The doctor said he has a INGUINAL hernia that is not work related. He says it's because of a varicocele. He told him that the varicocele may be blocked with a tumor that could be cancerous. He is at our family doctor right now? I am confused b/c isn't a inguinal hernia usually related to heavy lifting/straining. I mean classic type of hernia someone in my husband's profession would get. Why would a doctor say anything about a tumor? Is it because he felt something that convinced him that there is a mass in kidneys??? I'm just not sure. I am scared. My husband is 37. He smokes, drinks and is a little overweight. I know all that is bad but he is an awesome dude-totally irrelevant but had to put that in there. We have 3 small children-I'm scared. Any advise would be appreciated!
