Groin disruption is a clinical diagnosis based on history and examination. Inverting the scrotum and placing the examining little finger in each superficial inguinal ring in turn gives the diagnosis.

On the affected side the ring is usually dilated, there is a cough impulse and most importantly there is tenderness. Adductor weakness is present in 40%, this sometimes also requires surgical treatment.
