2. Inguinal Hernia

An inguinal hernia can cause pain in the lower left quadrant of the abdominal area. This condition is most common in men and involves a bulge in the groin that can extend to the scrotum. It occurs when part of the lower intestine pushes through a weak portion of the abdominal muscles.

The pain may occur when coughing, lifting or bending over and can cause a constant burning in the bulge area. Individuals who experience nausea, vomiting, and fever should contact their doctor immediately.2‘Inguinal Hernia.’ Mayo Clinic, Mayo Foundation for Medical Education and Research, 26 Feb. 2019, www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/inguinal-hernia/symptoms-causes/syc-20351547.
