What is a Hernia?

There are over 20 different types of hernias that can occur in the human body and abdominal hernias are by far the most common type of hernia that occurs.

A hernia is a protrusion or a bulge of an organ or fatty tissue through the external or internal wall or other structure that usually contains the mass. As mentioned before, most hernias occur in the abdomen, with others occurring in the pelvis, diaphragm or anus. A hernia may or may not be accompanied by pain or a visible lump and can sometimes mimic symptoms of other conditions as in the case of hiatal hernias
