What is a hernia?

A hernia is a small sac containing tissue which protrudes through an opening in the muscles of the abdominal wall. This opening can be a result of a congenital flaw or an acquired flaw due to sudden or even repeated stress or strain on the abdominal muscles . The most common type of hernia is an inguinal hernia, also known as a “groin hernia”. A hernia develops when the outer layers of the abdominal wall weaken, bulge or actually rip causing internal organs and tissue to push through the tear creating the typical “bulge” found with most hernia patients.
