What Is a Hernia?
A hernia is when an organ or tissue pushes through your abdominal wall. There are different kinds of hernias, but the most common happen in the groin or belly area.
A ventral hernia (also known as a belly or abdominal hernia) generally causes a slight bulge along a patient’s outer abdomen. These types of hernias are typically accompanied by:
- Mild pain
- Dull aching
- Sensations of pressure
Heavy lifting and exercise can cause hernia discomfort to worsen.
An inguinal hernia (also known as a groin hernia) often presents differently in women and men.
Men often experience a bulge at the hernia site. They may feel:
- Aching pain
- A tugging sensation around the scrotum and testicles
While some women may experience a bulge at the site of a groin hernia, this isn’t always the case. Women may feel:
- A sharp, aching pain
- Burning sensations
