Don't let a hernia hold you back

Hernias don't heal on their own. If left untreated, they can get progressively worse, making it important to speak with a doctor as soon as possible to determine the cause of your symptoms.


Hernias develop in the abdominal, groin and chest area. Symptoms range from a bulge, swelling, sense of feeling full to heartburn, indigestion and difficulty swallowing. The most common types of hernias are inguinal or femoral hernias, which are caused by weakened muscles in the abdominal and groin area.

Anyone can develop them; specific risk factors include being male, family history, chronic cough or constipation, weight lifting or pregnancy.
