What is Hernia ?
A hernia is a protrusion of an organ or tissue through an abnormal opening in the body. Most hernias occur when a piece of intestine slips through a weakness in the abdominal wall, creating a bulge you can see and feel. Hernias can develop around the navel, in the groin, or any place where you may have had a surgical incision. Some hernias are present at birth. Others develop slowly over a period of months or years. Hernias also can come on quite suddenly.
A hernia can be both seen and felt. You may notice it as a lump in your abdomen or groin that may or may not disappear when you lie down. You also may be aware of a dull aching sensation that becomes more pronounced when you are active. Most of the hernias do not hurt, or produce any sensations.
The discomfort you feel especially when you cough, lift something heavy, or stand for a long time comes from the constant pressure of tissue pushing its way through the weakened spot in your body. As more tissue pushes through the weakend area, the feeling of pressure increases. A hernia that develops or worsens quickly can produce a sudden intense pain as it enlarges. it may be symptom of strangulated hernia.
With the exception of an incisional hernia (a complication of abdominal surgery), in most cases, there is no obvious reason for a hernia to occur. The risk of hernia increases with age and occurs more commonly in men than in women.
This defect in the peritoneum allows organs and tissues to push through, or herniate, producing a bulge.
A hernia can be congenital (present at birth) or develop in children who have a weakness in their abdominal wall.
Activities and medical problems that increase pressure on the abdominal wall can lead to a hernia. These include:
