A hernia is described as a noticeable lump or bulge in any area of your body resulting from the protruding tissue from the muscle walls. However, every lump may not be Hernia. However, if you feel a dull aching sensation, backache, sharp ache while sneezing or coughing, it can result from a Hernia. Dr.Abhijit Gotkhinde from Ultra Care Clinic, Pune is very efficient in treating this disorder and never disappoints his patients.
Types of Hernia-
This occurs when your fats or intestines protrude from the abdominal wall towards the groin area.
There are two kinds of inguinal Hernia:
Indirect Inguinal Hernia:-
This is present in the patient’s body since birth, due to which they include a disorganized or weakened abdominal wall.
Direct Inguinal Hernia:-
This develops with age; as the patient becomes older, their abdominal wall becomes weaker and vulnerable.
Inguinal Hernia causes pain while lifting heavy things, coughing, bending or bowing, etc.
This occurs when you have a weak patch in your muscle area of the inner thigh or groin, and it leads to the protrusion of tissue through it. The patient may suffer from lower abdominal pain, nausea, etc.
This type of Hernia is mostly found in newborns or infants. When your intestines peek through the muscles around the navel area, it is termed an Umbilical Hernia. While this disorder is harmless for infants, adults may face abdominal uneasiness.
This occurs majorly post abdominal surgery or near a scar. Patients might suffer from fever, constipation, abdominal pain, vomiting, inflammation near the bulge, etc.
This occurs above the navel area where the patient has a weak spot in his epigastric area of the abdominal wall. The symptoms of Epigastric Hernias include sensitive bulge, pain around the bulge, noticeable protrusion during a laugh, sneeze or cough, etc.
There is an opening in the diaphragm where the food pipe connects with the stomach, which is called Hiatus. The stomach of the Hiatal Hernia’s patient peeks out through the hiatus towards their chest. The patient might suffer from blood vomit, abdominal pain, discomfort while swallowing, etc.
