Hernia Diagnosis and Treatment

A doctor will perform a hernia diagnosis to determine the severity of your disease so that they can suggest an appropriate treatment for you. The first step by a doctor is to physically examine the affected region. The diagnosis can include a series of tests like an abdominal ultrasound, abdominal CT scan, and an abdominal MRI scan. These are all imaging tests that help the doctor pinpoint the location and effect of the hernia. You do not have to worry about booking separate tests anymore. Book your Hernia surgery through PharmEasy SurgiCare. Our Care Expert will help you in getting your diagnostic tests done through PharmEasy.

Here are the surgery options that your doctor might recommend to you for treatment of the hernia:

  • Option 1 ยท Doctor Recommended

    Laparoscopic surgery

    Laparoscopic surgery is a procedure where small incisions are made on the abdomen or the groin and surgical tools are inserted to view and treat the affected area. The affected tissue is pushed back into place and the affected area is reinforced with a surgical mesh. The incision is closed with a small suture that heals quickly.

  • Option 2


    Hernioplasty is an open surgery to treat a hernia. An incision is made on the groin and the bulging tissue is pushed back into place. The affected area is repaired by sewing the muscle tissues together. A mesh might even be placed to reinforce the affected area.

What is Hernia?

  • Hernia Symptoms

    The following are some symptoms of hernia that you can keep an eye for:

    • A noticeable bulge or lump near the groin or abdominal region. This is especially noticeable when you stand upright or while coughing.

    • A sensation of burning at the affected area.

    • Pain in the bulging area and sharp sensations when bending or doing strenuous activity.

    • A sensation of heaviness at the region of the bulge.

    • Pain and swelling around the testicles (for men in case of inguinal hernia).

    • A constant increase in the size of the bulging area.

    • Not being able to pass stools (caused by the inflammation and bulging of the intestines).

  • What Causes a Hernia?

    Hernia can be caused due to several factors. Weakness in the muscles present since birth can be a major factor for hernia, but some other factors can cause hernia too. Here are some of the major causes of hernia:

    • Strenuous activity Engaging in strenuous activities like heavy lifting or exercise can put a considerable amount of pressure on the intestines and lead to the development of a hernia.

    • Injuries Injuries to the abdomen or the intestines can displace it and weaken the muscle tissues in the area causing a hernia.

    • Developmental issues Most inguinal hernias happen because an opening in the muscle wall does not close before birth as it should. This leaves a weak area in the belly muscle.

    • Constipation Constipation can cause a lot of stress during bowel movement, and putting too much pressure on the intestines for a bowel movement can cause a hernia.

    • Chronic coughing Chronic coughing refers to a condition where you have to cough constantly. Excessive coughing can put sudden pressure on the intestines.

    • Pregnancy Pregnancies put a considerable amount of pressure on the intestines of women since their muscle walls stretch. Multiple pregnancies can cause a weakened muscle wall near the stomach and lead to a hernia.

    • Obesity The excess amount of fat near the abdominal muscles can put pressure on the intestine, thereby causing a hernia.

    • Premature birth If a baby is born prematurely, that means that it might have underdeveloped muscle tissue. This can sometimes cause a hernia in newborn infants.

    • Ascites Ascites is a condition where the liver does not function properly and leads to the buildup of fluid in the abdominal region. This can put pressure on the intestine and cause its displacement.

A Hernia is a condition where an internal organ or fatty tissue of the body push through the weak areas of surrounding muscles and tissues. Physically, it looks like an abnormally bulging body part.
