A hernia is a very common problem among many people and it could get fatal if not treated on time. A hernia happens in the abdomen when an organ or piece of tissue stick out through one of the weakened muscle walls.
Hernias are most common in the abdomen, however, they can also occur in the upper thigh, belly button, and groin areas. Hernioplasty is a simple and safe procedure to repair the hernia. Many inguinal hernias can also be repaired by a minimally invasive laparoscopic procedure.
The hernia may or may not produce the symptoms. Commonly it is asymptomatic and can cause slight to severe pain. Normally, hernias don’t get away themselves. It does require medical intervention on time before it gets more painful and fatal. It is seen that men are more prone to develop a hernia than women because of the basic difference in anatomy.
Surgery is the best way to treat the hernia as it can not go away on its own. Now a day there are many types of surgeries available to treat hernias in India.
