A hernia is a bulge caused by tissue pushing through the wall of muscle that’s holding it in. Most hernias are abdominal hernias. This means they happen in the belly and groin areas. 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.

Femoral hernias

Femoral hernias occur in the groin – the small area of the lower abdomen on each side, just above the line separating the abdomen and the legs to light as emergencies.

Hiatal hernia

A hiatal hernia is where part of the upper stomach pushes through the diaphragm at this usually snug point. Part of the stomach can “herniate” at this “hiatus” if the opening is weakened.

The symptoms of a hiatal hernia are caused by acid coming up from the stomach. Acid
going up from the stomach can cause heartburn.

Incisional hernia

An Incisional Hernia is a hernia that occurs through a previously made incision in the
abdominal wall, ie the scar left from a previous surgical operation. The incision will have been made in order to get to an internal organ such as the appendix, or a caesarian section.

Inguinal hernia

An inguinal hernia occurs in the groin area when fatty or intestinal tissues push through the inguinal canal. They cause bulges along the pubic or groin areas that can increase in size when you stand up or cough. This type of hernia may be painful or sensitive to the touch. Other symptoms may include: pain when coughing, exercising, or bending over, burning sensations, a heavy or full sensation in the groin, swelling of the scrotum in men.

Umbilical hernia

An umbilical hernia occurs when part of the bowel or fatty tissue pokes through an area
near the belly button. Umbilical hernias are common in young infants. An umbilical hernia looks like a lump in the navel, which might become more obvious when the baby is laughing, crying, going to the toilet, or coughing. When the child is lying down or relaxed, the lump may shrink. In the majority of cases, an infant’s umbilical hernia closes on its own by the age of 12 months. Umbilical hernias might also develop in adults, especially if they are very overweight, lifting heavy objects, or have a persistent cough.

Stoma hernia

A hernia is a weakness or split in the muscle wall of the abdomen which allows the abdominal contents (usually some part of the intestine) to bulge out. Stomas pose an additional problem. When a stoma is brought out to the surface of the abdomen it must pass through the muscles of the abdominal wall, thus a potential site of weakness is Immediately created.
