Hernia is a common condition that a number of people are forced to go through. Hernia creates severe pain which is very difficult to be borne. It also demands utmost medical care and only an expert doctor can help to cure it.
Hernia is nothing but the protruding out of some organs as blug through the cavities in which they are present. This condition occurs when the organ tries to push itself out through the openings in the tissues or muscles that hold it in its place. An intestine breaking through the abdominal wall is a common example of Hernia. Mostly seen in the abdomen region, hernias can be formed in any part of the groin region, upper thighs and belly button.
There are two types of treatments depending on the kind of hernia.
When it is an inguinal hernia, the diagnosis is usually done by both personal examinations of the patient and by imaging the area by using X-rays, CT scan or an MEI scan. When a hernia is enlarged or is very painful, usually surgical methods are employed in the treatment. Since inguinal hernias are capable of incarceration and strangulation.
In the case of a ventral hernia, the methods of diagnosis are more or less the same. Personal examination and imaging of a hernia will suffice in the diagnosis of a ventral hernia. Since a strangulated bowel is included in the course of the treatment, a surgical process is always recommended. For some other medical conditions which might result in developing hernia or might have arisen from a hernia, medicati
ons involving antibiotics will suffice.
