Inguinal Hernia


Contents of the abdominal cavity protrude through the inguinal canal with a bulge in the groin area showing prominence when coughing or straining. Usually not appearing when lying down, it does not cause any pain. Progressively, the intestines and the liver slowly start descending into the hernia causing intestinal obstruction due to pinching. Inguinal hernias are considered as groin hernias. They are at a high risk of incarceration and irreducibility.

Causes

  • Increased intra-abdominal pressure
  • Weakened spot in the abdomen
  • Straining
  • Lifting heavy weights and objects
  • Ascites
  • Obesity
  • Pregnancy
  • COPD
