It can be. Can you push it back in? Is it painful to do so? The danger is if it becomes incarcerated. You should make an appointment with a doctor though just to be on the safe side.

Yes it does hurt when i push on it and it hurts if i pick my leg up too high or sometimes itll hurt even if im not doing anything. The pain is usually really minor though.

But you're not able to push it all the way back in? You really need to see a doctor about this soon. It's a problem only fixed with surgery.
