Usually there are no symptoms. However, sometimes there might be discomfort or pain. The discomfort might be worse whenever you stand, strain, or lift heavy objects.
Although a hernia may only cause mild discomfort, it might develop and strangulate. Which means that the tissue is stuck within the hole and it is circulation has been stop. If this occurs, you'll need urgent surgery.
Signs and tests
A doctor will tell you the presence of a hernia during a physical exam. The mass may increase in size when coughing, bending, lifting, or straining.
The hernia (bulge) may not be obvious in youngsters, except when the child is crying or coughing. In some cases, an ultrasound may be needed to consider a hernia.
Surgical treatment is the only treatment that may permanently fix a hernia. However, smaller hernias with no symptoms can sometimes be watched. Surgery may have more risk for patients with serious medical conditions.
Surgery will usually be utilized for hernias that are getting larger or are painful. Surgery secures the weakened abdominal wall tissue (fascia) and can close any holes. Today, most hernias are closed with cloth patches to plug in the holes.
An umbilical hernia that fails to heal by itself when your child is 5 years old may be repaired.
Emergency surgery is sometimes needed. The sac containing the intestine or other tissue can become stuck within the hole in the abdominal wall. Whether it can't be pushed back through, this may lead to a strangulated loop of intestine. If not treated, this portion of the intestine dies since it loses its blood supply.
Instead of open surgery, some hernias can be repaired using a laparoscope (camera). The advantages of using a camera include small surgical cuts, faster recovery, and fewer pain following the procedure.
