About Inguinal hernia
A hernia occurs when part of an organ moves out of its normal position through a weakness in the surrounding wall of muscle or tissue. When this happens in the groin, it is called an inguinal hernia. The internal lining of the abdomen (called the peritoneum) bulges through a weakness in the abdominal wall in the groin. The bulge often contains parts of the intestine (or bowel). From the outside it usually appears as a lump, and can cause discomfort. An inguinal hernia may limit day-to-day activities and the person's ability to work. These hernias can occasionally be life-threatening if the bowel within the lump becomes obstructed (known as a strangulated hernia).
