Hernia is one of the common ailment. A Hernia is the exit of an organ such as intestine or the omentum through the wall of the cavity in which it normally resides.
An inguinal hernia is the most common type of hernia and occurs when tissue, such as part of the intestine, protrudes through a weak spot in the abdominal muscles.
It can appear as a swelling in groin area or lump in your groin, or as an enlarged scrotum. An inguinal hernia isn’t necessarily dangerous. However it doesn’t improve on its own and can lead to life-threatening complications.
A hernia is a protrusion of contents of abdomen through the weakness of abdominal wall. The weakness can be acquired (e.g after surgery) or congenital (since birth).
Hernias are Asymptomatic and do not produce any symptom that can help in their diagnosis. But, it can cause mild to severe pain in cases when they are under continued stress or in contact with other body parts.
Common abdominal wall hernias are – Ventral hernia, Umbilical hernia and incisional hernia
