An inguinal hernia occurs when the muscles of the groin or lower abdomen are weakened enough to allow the tissues they support to push outward. In some cases, a portion of the intestine may protrude through the opening in the muscle wall. This could potentially cause obstruction of the bowel and serious medical consequences for patients. Dr. Rick Ngo and the experts at Texas Hernia Specialist can provide minimally invasive surgery for inguinal hernias.
Symptoms of an Inguinal Hernia
Some of the most common symptoms of inguinal hernias include the following:
- A feeling of weakness, tightness or pressure around the groin
- Pain in the groin when you lift objects, cough or bend over
- Aching and discomfort in the site of the bulge
- Intestinal distress, including constipation and a feeling of being overly full
Seeking medical treatment with a qualified hernia doctor is essential to treat these symptoms and the underlying problems that cause them.
