Hernia: Do not ignore hernia. Early treatment helps. Learn about causes, symptoms and treatment of hernia

A hernia occurs when an organ pushes through a weak spot in muscle or tissue. Most hernias occur within the abdominal cavity, between the chest and the hips.

The most common types of hernia are inguinal (inner groin) and femoral (outer groin) hernias.  Of all hernias that occur nearly 75% to 80% are inguinal or femoral.
