What is a hernia?
« on: February 06, 2013, 08:23:32 AM »
A hernia is a bulge of intestine, another organ, or fat through the muscles of the belly. A hernia can occur when there is weakness in the
muscle wall that allows part of an internal organ to push through.
You may have a hernia if you can feel a soft lump in your belly or groin or in a scar where you had surgery in the past.
The lump may go away when you press on it or lie down. It may be painful, especially when you cough, bend over, or lift something heavy.

There are different types of hernias include:
1. Inguinal hernia
2. Femoral hernia
3. Umbilical hernia
4. Incisional hernia
5. Epigastric hernia

A hernia occurs when there is a weakness or hole in the muscular wall that usually keeps abdominal organs in place - the peritoneum. This defect allows organs and tissues to push through, or herniate, producing a bulge.

Types of hernia :

inguinal hernia: the intestine or the bladder protrudes through the abdominal wall or into the inguinal canal in the groin. About 96% of all groin hernias are inguinal, and most occur in men because of a natural weakness in this area.
incisional hernia: the intestine pushes through the abdominal wall at the site of previous abdominal surgery. This type is most common in elderly or overweight people who are inactive after abdominal surgery.
femoral hernia: A femoral hernia occurs when the intestine enters the canal carrying the femoral artery into the upper thigh. Femoral hernias are most common in women, especially those who are pregnant or obese.
umbilical hernia: In an umbilical hernia, part of the small intestine passes through the abdominal wall near the navel. Common in newborns, it also commonly afflicts obese women or those who have had many children.
hiatal hernia : A hiatal hernia happens when the upper stomach squeezes through the hiatus, an opening in the diaphragm through which the esophagus passes.
