I have an inguinal hernia, should I get an operation?



 

I have an inguinal hernia on the left side of my groin, it is small, has appeared 2 weeks ago. It does not cause any pain at all nor does it disturb me. When lying down I don’t feel it at all. But when I stand I do see it. When I push on it I feel it. Should I get surgery done?
