Inguinal hernia

Inguinal hernia

An inguinal hernia is a gut, bowel and stomach condition and one of the most common types of hernia. It appears as a swelling along the groin. The lump may be pushed back into the groin,but this may be painful. It becomes visible when a person coughs or lifts any weight. The fatty tissue or the bowel protrudes into the groin through a weak spot in the abdominal wall. Complications of inguinal hernia are a build-up of fluid, swelling, pain and numbness.

There are various methods available to repair a hernia which are generally performed by Gastro-intestinal or General surgeons.
