A hernia occurs when the contents of a body cavity come out of the area where they are supposed to remain intact. Hernias are not acutely life threatening, however, it left untreated for a long time they can result in complications in which the blood supply to the contents of the hernia can be cut off. The causes of hernia include chronic stomach disorders (diarrhoea or constipation), lifting of heavy objects and chronic coughing. Obesity, smoking and poor nutrition also lead to the weakening of the cavity muscles and increases the chances of occurrence of hernias. Symptoms of hernia include a bulge in the affected area, pain or discomfort in the affected area, chest pain, heartburn and difficulty in swallowing. In certain hernias they may be no symptoms as well and discovery might happen only upon physical examination. Endoscopy and barium x rays are other methods applied in the diagnosis of hernias. The most common types of hernias are groin, umbilical, incisional and hiatal. Groin hernias are the ones with the highest incidence over 75% of all hernias worldwide are of this type. Groin hernias are of 2 types – inguinal and femoral. Inguinal hernias occur mostly in men and can be direct or indirect. Femoral hernias are more common in older women. Umbilical hernias are common in newborns and are found around the belly button. Incisional hernias occur post surgery in the abdominal wall where tissues emerge from the sites of surgical wounds that have not completely healed. Between 2-10% of abdominal surgeries lead to incisional hernias. Hiatal hernias occur when a part of the stomach bulges from the diaphragm. Treatment options for hernia depend on the severity of the condition and include lifestyle changes, medication, open or laparoscopic surgeries.
