Have this assessed by your surgeon. How large is the lump? Is it reddish and painful? When you press on it , does the lump fluctuate or disappear?

When you strain does the lump appear to bulge or increase in size?

You had prior history of hernia. At this point, we can not really tell if this needs immediate intervention. However, with a significant history then this may have to be assessed early on.

Just continue to observe the lump. For any abdominal pain, any increase in size of the lump, any discharge or redness, then I would suggest that you have this assessed by your physician immediately. Just avoid picking on the lump or pressing on it.

As for the fever, this may be an upper respiratory tract infection. This may be viral. Drink plenty of water and rest well.
