A hernia occurs when an internal part of the body such as an organ pushes through a weak area in the surrounding muscle or tissue wall. Hernias usually occur between your chest and hips. In many cases, they cause few symptoms, but you may notice a swelling or lump in your tummy (abdomen) or groin. The lump can often be pushed back in or disappears when you lie down. Coughing or straining may make the lump appear.

If your hernia causes sudden pain and especially if it can’t be pushed back in, you should seek urgent medical care. It may mean that your hernia is trapped or tightly pinched where it pokes through the muscle wall (obstruction) and in extreme cases it may cut off the blood supply to your intestines and tissues in your abdomen (strangulation).

A hernia is not usually a serious condition but it will not go away without hernia treatment known as a hernia repair.

If you require hernia repair surgery our expert consultants can offer a range of advanced treatments.

Inguinal hernia
The most common type of hernia is called an inguinal hernia. This is when tissue or part of your bowel, such as the intestine, protrudes into your groin area. It can appear as a lump or bulge in your groin or as an enlarged scrotum (the pouch containing the testicles). The lump may be painful, especially when you cough, bend over or lift a heavy object. Inguinal hernias are most common in older men. As you get older, the muscles around your tummy can become weaker. This type of hernia is also associated with repeated strain on the tummy. If your hernia is painful or getting bigger, you may need a routine operation to repair it. A hernia does not get better on its own and can cause complications.

Umbilical hernia
An umbilical hernia is when tissue or a part of the bowel protrudes into the tummy near the belly button. It causes the belly button to pop outwards. This type of hernia is very common in babies, particularly those who are born prematurely. It occurs when the opening in their tummy that the umbilical cord passes through does not seal properly after birth. You may see a lump or bulge near their belly button when they laugh, cough, cry or go to the toilet.

Incisional hernia
Incisional hernias can occur near or along surgical scars in the abdomen. Incisional hernias may occur months or years after an abdominal operation. You can usually only see a small lump or swelling near the site of the scar at first. The lump appears when you cough or strain, and then goes away again. Over time, though, it might get bigger and start hurting.

Most incisional hernias don’t cause any serious problems. However if they do start to cause pain or discomfort the treatment options for incisional hernias are open surgery or minimally invasive surgery. Minimally invasive surgery is also called “keyhole surgery,” or “laparoscopic” surgery if it is performed on the abdomen.
