A 67-year-old man presents with a bulge in his right groin, which he recently noticed while in the shower. He is easily able to push it back completely, but it reappears intermittently. He says it is not painful and that he has not altered his activity level because of it. Physical examination confirms the presence of a right inguinal hernia. How should his case be managed?
