Signs You Might Need Hernia Surgery

A hernia often appears as a bulge or a lump in your lower stomach or groin area. In some cases you may know what caused the hernia, however there are times when you do not know the exact cause of a hernia.

Men and women often experience hernias after lifting something heavy. This strain can cause a gap between the muscle layers of the abdomen. Through this gap, tissues that should remain in the abdomen then can go through and cause the bulge of a hernia.

Hernias can range from large to small. In most cases, hernias are a minor inconvenience, however some hernias can be life-threatening. It is important to talk to your provider as soon as you think you may have a hernia.
