Hernia Symptoms

Groin and abdominal hernia are very common illnesses.1 in 100 people have groin or abdominal wall hernia. However, unless the hernia grows or aches, doctors are not visited and it might even be unnoticed.

Hernia Symptoms

The most obvious hernia symptom is a protrusion that can be noticed with physical examination or seen as it grows. When abdominal muscles are not contracted and the patient lies on her/his back, the protruding organs and fat tissue can move back in the abdominal cavity and hernia might disappear momentarily. But in cases where protrusion width is small and/or hernia has grown too much, it might not disappear in above conditions.

Depending on the size of the hernia and the types of internal organs in the hernia sac, pain can accompany the protrusion. Abdominal hernia types are classified depending on the region they take place in – groin, umbilical, epigastric, incision, and flank hernia.
