Hernia Signs and Symptoms

 By: Groshan Fabiola
Hernia symptoms are usually related to the bulge that hernia causes. In The early phases you only notice that small lump that does not hurt when it is touched. As the illness advances the bulge, or herniation as some specialists call it becomes painful and keeps swallowing. The lump becomes more visible when you cough or sneeze and in most cases it can be pushed back with your hand, but it will come out again in a couple of minutes. If it cannot be pushed back then it is possible that you are suffering from a strangulated hernia.

When you have strangulated hernia the tissue or organ that pushes out has had its blood supply cut. In this case you need to visit a doctor in short time because the situation can get worse as time passes.

Also, if you are suffering from asymptomatic reducible hernia, the signs and symptoms are a little different.
First of all, pain can appear before the affected area begins to swallow and the lump is discovered. Besides the original lump you may discover another lump in the groin or in the abdominal wall. The herniation's size may vary depending on your position - It is bigger when you stand and smaller when you lie down.

Irreducible hernia, just as its name suggests, can not be pushed back. This usually means that an old hernia is transforming, and complications can appear. It can easily lead to strangulation of the tissue. It also has some other different symptoms like vomiting.

Strangulated hernia, a form that is more dangerous, as mentioned before strangulates an organ or tissue and it cuts its blood supply. This type of hernia can also present vomiting symptoms and the strangulated area is always painful.
Strangulated hernia quickly needs surgery, but hernia surgery is an easy operation that succeeds in almost all cases so there's no need to fear and delay it.

A hernia occurs when the contents of a body cavity bulge out of the area where they are normally contained. These contents, usually portions of intestine or abdominal fatty tissue, are enclosed in the thin membrane that naturally lines the inside of the cavity. Although the term hernia can be used for bulges in other areas, it most often is used to describe hernias of the lower torso (abdominal wall hernias).
In medical terminology, many terms are used such as bulging disc, pinched nerve, slipped disc or ruptured disc to describe herniated disc. Spine damage caused by disease, injury or normal wear and tear can lead to herniated disc. Herniated disc condition is the result of inflammation of the disc material caused by aging and compression on the nerve system.
Thousands of patients experience ventral (incisional) hernias every year, and most of these hernias require hernial repair surgery. Many patients have questions about this complex medical procedure, and the different treatment options available to them. This article exists in an attempt to answer many of those queries.
