Do hernias reoccur?

Hello, last night I had some discomfort in my groin, while I was trying to get to sleep. As if I were laying on a cord or something of the sort. When I looked in the mirror, I saw a welt near a scar for a hernia surgery I had as an infant.

When I woke up this morning, the welt is gone. The discomfort stil remains.

So, I'm curious can a hernia reoccur, and that's what happened, or might it just be a pulled muscle?

Should I go see my doctor on Monday?

Yes, hernias can recur.
You should certainly call the doctor who performed your original repair.
