Hernia is a bulge in the tissue holding muscle in place. In general, a hernia occurs in the inner layers of the abdomen muscles which are weak. As this area is weak, it is easily pushed by the inner layer of the abdomen forming a small balloon-like sac. This prevents the blood circulation to the abdominal tissue leading to severe pain in the abdomen.
Hernia is classified into two types, viz., Inguinal Hernia caused in the groin, and Umbilical Hernia caused in the abdomen near the belly button. Both hernia types have common symptoms such as Severe Pain in the abdomen or groin particularly at the bulge, Discomfort, weakness, heavy feeling in the abdomen, Swelling under the skin of abdomen and groin and Constipation and blood in the stool.
If you found any of these hernia symptoms, then it is high time to consult a gastroenterologist for the treatment of hernia disease. The doctor may suggest you suitable medication or recommend you for hernia repair surgery treatment based on the severity of the hernia disease.
Hernia repair surgery can be done in two ways. One is an open surgery, and the other one is the laparoscopic surgery method. The difference between both operation methods is nothing but the cut dimension. In open surgery, the cut dimension is more compared to laparoscopic surgery where 3-4 small cuts are made in the lower belly area. Laparoscopic hernia surgery is most recommendable today as it heals soon with less pain.
