What is Hernia?

In medical terms, the protrusion of an organ or a part of an organ through an abnormal opening in the wall of the cavity that normally contains it is referred to as Hernia. The main cause of Hernia is the weakness of the abdominal muscles. This can either be congenital or acquired. The congenital weakness of abdominal muscles is present since birth and the acquired muscle weakness results from various factors like surgical incisions, repeated pregnancy, excess fat in abdomen, chronic cough, constipation and even excessive weight lifting. Homeopathic medicines, which are sourced from natural substances and are completely safe with zero side effects, are of great help in curing various types of Hernia.

Types of Hernia

Inguinal Hernia: This is the commonest type of Hernia. It can occur in infants or adults and since the swelling is in the groin, the panic button is pressed quite early. In InguinalHernia, a part of abdominal contents, mainly intestines, protrudes through the inguinal region of the abdominal wall. The inguinal region is present in the groin.

Umbilical Hernia: This Hernia is more common in females than males and also in infants. In Umbilical Hernia, the abdominal contents bulge out from the umbilicus or navel of abdomen.

Femoral Hernia: This Hernia is also more common in females and very uncommon in children. In Femoral Hernia, the abdominal contents protrude through the femoral canal present in the upper inner thigh region.

Obstructed/Incarcerated Hernia: In this type of Hernia, the lumen of intestine (colon) gets obstructed, leading to intestinal obstruction.

Strangulated Hernia: In this type of Hernia, the arterial supply of the contents of Hernia stops along with intestinal obstruction. Femoral Hernia is most liable to get strangulated.

Symptoms of Hernia

The main symptom of Hernia is swelling or formation of a lump. In Inguinal Hernia,the swelling appears in the groin.In Femoral Hernia, the swelling appears in the upper inner thigh region and in Umbilical Hernia, the swelling is apparent around the navel. Swelling is often accompanied by discomfort or a dragging type of pain around the swelling. In case of obstructed or strangulated Hernia, abdominal colic, vomiting, distended abdomen and constipation are the main symptoms.
