Inguinal Hernia

Inguinal hernia is a condition where a part of the intestine protrudes out of the abdomen through a tear in the abdominal wall. Inguinal hernias most commonly develop in the area between the abdomen and thighs, in the area of inguinal ring. Inguinal hernias affect people of all ages and are more common in men compared to women.

Inguinal hernias are of two types:

  • Indirect inguinal hernias - Indirect inguinal hernia often affects premature infants and is caused because of non-closure of inguinal canal and is a congenital disorder

  • Direct inguinal hernias - Direct inguinal hernia is common in adult males and is caused because of degeneration of tissues in abdominal muscles

Inguinal hernias cause discomfort and sharp pain which may be worsened with increased activity and relieved on rest. Patients may also experience burning or gurgling sensation at the site of hernia.
