Hernia is the protrusion (bulge) of abdominal organ- Intestine or momentum through a weakened part of the abdominal wall.
A hernia does not get better over time, nor will it go away by itself (except very small congenital navel hernia).
It always becomes bigger with time. Hernia is easily recognizable clinically by examining the patient..
It appears as a bulge under the skin.
This bulge may appear on standing or straining and may disappear on lying down. It may or may not be painful.
Discomfort may worsen at the end of the day and also while coughing and sneezing.
You may have a feel of drag. Usually no investigation is required for diagnosing hernia
