My son is 6weeks old, born 6 weeks and 2 days premature. Yesterday i noticed a lump in his groin, in the space between his penis and the bottom of his belly, which sort of bubbled like trapped air when i touched it. My health visitor had no idea what it was, thinking maybe a bit of wind, and suggested i take him along to my 6week post natal check next week. Today the lump seems slightly bigger and mostly on his right, and now feels hard and no longer bubbily.

He doesnt seem in any pain or discomfort, even when im touching it, but he's my first baby and im in a bit of a panic... can it wait til next week or should i have him seen to sooner??

Take him to the dr. perhaps is a hernia? Hernias don't hurt all the time. (I've had one myself for 4 years and JUST took it out because it started getting uncomfortable)
