The hernia lump is made up of substances from within the abdomen that are out of place.

Types of Hernia

Groin and Inguinal Hernia are the most common types of hernia. The other types are umbilical hernia, incisional hernia, ventral hernia, and femoral hernia. All these are based on the location of the Hernia.

Symptoms of Hernia

The most common characteristics symptom of hernia is a lump, swelling or bulge that may or may not affect a person, but often occurs while doing an abdominal strenuous job or standing up. If this bulge resists manual pressure, then it requires medical attention.

When a person experiences pain, heaviness or any discomfort while coughing, straining or lifting any heavy object, he needs to check for hernia. Other symptoms of hernia are a pulling sensation around the lump, belching, constant dull pain, bloating, and feelings of nausea and constipation.

Laparoscopic Hernia Treatment

In most cases, surgery is used for treating the hernia that cannot be pushed back manually. The traditional surgery involves an incision in the area of the Hernia from the outside. This incision allows accessibility to the level of the hernia as it passes through the skin and fat.

The latest form of surgery for treating Hernia is the Laparoscopic Hernia Repair. This procedure repairs the hernia from behind the abdominal wall. A surgeon can view the hernia and the surrounding tissue with the help of a laparoscopic camera, that is inserted through a small hollow tube. For a better visual of the abdomen, it is inflated with harmless carbon dioxide. This is done by cutting through the lining of the abdomen (Peritoneum) to expose its weaknesses. Then a mesh patch is tied to secure the problematic zones below the peritoneum. Finally, this peritoneum is sealed with staples or sutures after deflating the surgical area and is allowed to heal.
