The sensation of a pulling and stretching pain in the belly is not at all a pleasant feeling. Already suffocating under the pulls and pressures of daily life, the belly is one soothsayer that helps us loosen up when we sit in front of the dining table filled with aromatic delectable refreshments enriching the palate and filling the stomach.

Have you heard of Hernia ?

Imagine a constant lingering pain in the stomach and it's sure to bother you with the unkindest cut for the rest of our lives and that's what a hernia do to us. It is caused by the weakness in the abdominal tissue which protrudes through the abdominal walls that contain it thus creating a bulge.

Giant Inguinal Hernia, breaching the wall of health

Hernia has been classified into different types. The most serious and life-threatening are giant ventral hernia and giant inguinal hernia. The inguinal hernia could grow and extend up to thigh thus causing troublesome pain and inconvenience. This is typically caused by the protrusion of bowels through the abdominal wall into the inguinal canal in the groin. Inguinal hernia is found to enlarge over a period of time because of strenuous activity even after the detection of hernia. It has also been found that a weak abdominal tissue in a newborn may later lead to inguinal hernia.

How are they Managed?

Hernia could be detected by physical examination of the patient. There are other means of detecting hernia using MRI scan, CT Scan or an ultrasound of the abdomen. Laparoscopy is the most preferred surgical procedure adopted in treating these hernias as this is minimally invasive owing to which it is also referred to as keyhole surgery.
