TYPES OF HERNIA
A hernia in the area of the abdomen known as the epigastric region—above the belly button and below the ribs—is referred to as an epigastric hernia.
If you have an epigastric hernia, you might be able to feel it whenever the abdominal wall is compressed, such as when you cough, laugh, or crouch down to use the restroom.
Additionally, the area around the hernia may be painful or tender.
A femoral hernia can feel like a small to medium-sized lump in the groin and develops when tissue pushes through a weak spot in the groin or inner thigh.
Femoral hernias are thought to account for 2 to 4% of all groin hernias, with women being more likely than men to develop them.
Due to the proximity of the femoral artery and vein, which may be affected by a femoral hernia and potentially prevent blood flow to and from the leg, doctors almost always attempt surgical correction of femoral hernias.
A hiatal hernia is a condition that happens when the muscle that separates the lungs from the abdominal organs, the diaphragm, weakens and allows the stomach to protrude through.
You are more likely to experience acid reflux issues if you have a hiatal hernia.
After having stomach surgery, which typically involves making an incision down the middle of the stomach, a person may be more susceptible to developing an incisional hernia if the surgical wound doesn’t heal completely.
Any hernia type that develops along the midline of the stomach is referred to as having a ventral hernia, though not all of these hernias are incisional hernias, despite what some doctors may say.
A portion of intestine or fat that bulges through the lower stomach wall and typically travels through the inguinal canal in the groin area is called an inguinal hernia.
Some people’s small intestines, as well as the female reproductive system in some women, can become encased in an inguinal hernia.
According to the American College of Surgeons, umbilical hernias account for about 10% of all stomach hernias and occur when tissues in the body protrude through the belly button area’s (umbilicus) area of weakness.
This particular type of hernia results in an obvious bulge in or near the belly button, which is typically made worse by coughing or straining during bowel movements.
SYMPTOMS OF HERNIA
The most typical sign of a hernia is a lump or bulge in the affected area; for instance, an inguinal hernia manifests as a lump on either side of the pubic bone, which is where the groin and thigh meet.
When one is standing up, bending down, or coughing, one is more likely to feel their hernia through touch; discomfort or pain may also be present in the region surrounding the lump.
Heartburn, swallowing difficulties, and chest pain are just a few of the more specific symptoms that can be associated with some hernia types, such as hiatal hernias.
Hernias frequently go unnoticed, and one may not discover they exist until a routine physical examination or a doctor’s examination for a different condition.
CAUSES OF HERNIA
Hernias can develop quickly or take a long time to form depending on the cause, which is a combination of muscle weakness and strain.
A hernia may result from a number of common muscle strains or weaknesses, such as:
- a birth defect that develops during fetal development and is congenital in nature
- Surgical or injury-related damage
- Inflammatory pulmonary disease (COPD) or persistent cough
- heavy lifting or difficult exercise
- Multiple pregnancies, in particular, pregnancy
- Constipation makes it difficult to go to the bathroom without straining
- Being overweight or obese
- Ascites, or abdominal fluid,
The risk of developing a hernia can also be raised by a number of factors, such as:
- hernias in one’s own or one’s family
- being older
- being overweight or obese
- chronic constipation
- Chronic cough (likely brought on by recurrently elevated abdominal pressure)
- cystic fibrosis
- Smoking (which causes connective tissue to deteriorate)
- being born too soon or weighing too little
