If you noticed an unexpected pain in the groin or a sensation as if something had torn, you might be suffering from Hernia. A hernia is a fault in the abdominal muscle wall, which usually carries the internal lining of the abdomen and inner organs in place (i.e. inside, where they belong). The weakness allows the inner lining to protrude and form a pouch. You might see the bulge, usually a loop in the intestine.
Contrary to the popular myth that Hernia is caused by lifting heavy objects. Most people are born with a weakness in the muscle, which eventually gives way, or an opening that didn't close up (as it usually does) before birth.
Hernias can commonly be found in the following areas:
Groin: A femoral hernia creates a bulge just below the groin. This is more common in women. An inguinal hernia is more common in men. It is a bulge in the groin that may reach the scrotum.
Abdomen: A Hiatal and hiatus hernia is caused by the upper part of the abdomen—an opening in the diaphragm moves out of the abdominal cavity and into the chest cavity.
Belly button: An umbilical or periumbilical hernia produces a bulge in this region.
Surgical scar: Past stomach surgery can lead to an incisional hernia through the spot.
The typical symptom of a hernia is a lump in the affected area of the body. Subject to an inguinal hernia, you might notice a swelling on either side of your pubic bone where your groin and thigh meet. Other common symptoms of an inguinal hernia include:
