Common "Inguinal Hernia" queries answered by top doctors | iCliniq

Inguinal Hernia

A weak lower abdominal wall can lead to the contents of the abdomen like intestine or fat tissue poke open and protrude through the inguinal canal leading to inguinal hernia. These hernias are common in males. Symptoms include abdominal pain with cough and defecation and groin bulge. Pain reduces while lying down. In chronic cases, there is a risk of intestinal obstruction and strangulation due to compromised blood supply. Hernia with minimal to no discomfort or symptom needs no treatment. But for severe cases, hernia repair surgery with mesh support is advised.
