A hernia occurs when an internal organ ruptures a weak spot in the muscle wall and bursts out (typically in the belly, in the umbilical or femoral areas, or the groin region). While a hernia usually causes pain and discomfort, it can sometimes become life-threatening if not treated promptly. The tissue and muscle wall are tightened during hernia surgery with the use of a mesh designed to keep the internal organs in place.

Common Types of Hernia

There are four sorts of hernias affecting the people

1. Inguinal Hernia: This is the most frequent type of hernia, accounting for up to 75% of all cases. When the intestines rupture or push through a weak place in the lower abdominal wall, most commonly in the inguinal canal, inguinal hernias occur.

The spermatic cord goes from the abdomen to the scrotum through the inguinal canal in men. The ligament that helps seize the uterus in place is held in place by the inguinal canal in women.

Men are more likely than women to have an inguinal hernia because their testicles drop into the inguinal canal shortly after birth. As a result, males seek treatment for inguinal hernias.
