We present the case of a 62-year-old Chinese lady who presented to us with a left groin lump for a 1-year duration. There are no symptoms of intestinal obstruction such as vomiting, constipation, abdominal distension or abdominal pain. She has no other past medical history of note. On physical examination, a significant finding includes a 2cm irreducible left groin lump. The impression at that point was that of a femoral hernia, and this was confirmed on CT-scan. The patient was counselled for an elective laparoscopic transabdominal preperitoneal (TAPP) left femoral hernia repair.
