A hiccup is described as an involuntary contraction of the diaphragm. Hiccups may be triggered by a large meal, eating certain kinds of foods, surgery, inhaling noxious fumes and in worst cases could be a symptom of an underlying condition such as brain tumours and strokes. Hiccups usually disappear on their own and are rarely fatal.
