Hernia is a medical condition which causes a certain organ or a tissue to bulge out significantly from an unusual opening. Hernia tends to develop around your abdomen, groin and belly button regions. Hernia takes a significant time to develop depending on the resulting factors. Hernia might occur if there is a sustained muscular weakness as a result of chronic coughing, age and severe injury-related disorders.
If you or anyone from your family have a past history of developing hernia, you are at risk of developing symptoms of hernia. Besides, conditions like constipation, excessive smoking and cystic fibrosis makes you more prone to encountering Hernia.
The most common symptoms of hernia include significant pain around the concerned area (lower abdomen), intense aching sensation and weakness around the area. If the hernia develops around your chest, you might experience symptoms of chest pain and significant difficulty while swallowing food. Hernia treatments depend considerably on the intensity and the size of a hernia. Hernia surgery might be suggested by your general physician in extreme cases of intense pain.
