Major Causes of Hernia & Its Treatment

by Dr. Avinash Tank Obesity Doctor in Ahmedabad
When an organ protrudes through an opening in the tissue or muscle holding it, hernia occurs. Most commonly hernias happen in the abdomen. Besides, it can happen in the upper thigh, groin area and belly button. According to the best hernia doctor in Ahmedabad, hernia doesn’t always require a surgery, but sometimes in order to prevent complications, a surgery might be necessary.

Let’s take a look at some of the most common hernias.

1. Hiatal Hernia
Hiatal hernia is most common in people who are more than 50 years old. A hiatal hernia takes place when a part of your abdomen pushes up through the diaphragm into your chest cavity. More often than not, hiatal hernias cause gastroesophageal reflux which causes a burning sensation.

2. Umbilical Hernia
Umbilical hernia occurs in kids who are less than 6 months old. This occurs when intestines bulge through the abdominal wall near the bellybutton. Usually, this hernia goes away on its own with the abdominal wall muscles getting stronger. If it doesn’t you must visit one of the best hernia doctors in Ahmedabad.

3. Incisional Hernia
Incisional hernia may take place after getting an abdominal surgery done. The intestines might push through the incision scar or the weakened tissue.

4. Femoral Hernia
Femoral hernia is most common in old aged people, especially in women. That is mostly due to the weakening of the abdominal tissues at the time of pregnancy. The causes of femoral hernia are mostly straining, heavy lifting and coughing. Femoral hernia always requires a surgery and hence you must consult the best hernia doctor in Ahmedabad.

So, what causes the hernia in the first place?


More often than not, all hernias are caused due to a blend of pressure and an opening or muscle weakness. In some cases muscle weakness is since the time of birth while in other cases it takes place later in life.

Symptoms of Hernia

The most common symptom of hernia is a lump or bulge in the area that is affected. If it is inguinal hernia, you will see a lump on the either side of your pubic bone.  One feels hernia more while bending, coughing and bending down. If you are suffering from hernia, you will also find some sort of heaviness in the abdomen. Aching or burning sensation on the bulge is another symptom.

If you think you are possibly suffering from hernia, you must visit one of the best hernia doctors in Ahmedabad to get the treatment done. You must do it to ensure that your hernia is treated without any complications before it gets serious.
