What is Inguinal Hernia?

An inguinal hernia refers to the bulge or protrusion of the intestine and tissue in the abdomen. It is the most common type of hernia, which is more prevalent in men. The bulge is usually a result of excessive exertion on the abdominal wall that weakens it over time. An inguinal hernia can cause immense pain, especially when you cough, bend over, or lift heavyweights. If the hernia is asymptomatic, it may not cause any major problems. However, an inguinal hernia does not improve on its own and must be treated to avoid any complications.


Doctor Doing a Surgery


A physical examination by your doctor should be enough to determine the disease. Your doctor will check for a bulge or protrusion around the groin area, which will become more prominent when you stand or cough. In rare cases, when the bulge is not clearly visible, your doctor may recommend imaging tests such as an MRI, CT scan, or an abdominal ultrasound.


Inguinal hernias can sometimes be asymptomatic, meaning they can show no signs of pain or protrusion. Doctors usually recommend watchful waiting if the symptoms are very mild. However, if you experience severe pain, it can lead to complications and should not be ignored. The only treatment to permanently repair an inguinal hernia is via surgery. There are two types of general surgeries done for the treatment of inguinal hernia.

  • Open Surgery - In open surgery, the surgeon makes a big incision to get a full view of the structure and organs inside the body. It is usually done under general or local anesthesia so that the patient experiences minimum pain. The surgeon pushes the bulge back into your abdomen and shuts the wound with the help of surgical thread or sutures. Sometimes, surgeons may choose to insert surgical mesh for additional support to the abdominal wall. Since open surgery is a conventional method of treatment, its characteristics are as follows -
  • Involves big cuts/incisions
  • Recovery time is around three weeks
  • Higher blood loss

Laparoscopic Surgery - Laparoscopy is an advanced method of treating inguinal hernia using a piece of equipment called a Laparoscope. In this procedure, the surgeon makes a small incision around the abdomen and inserts a laparoscope through this incision. The camera on the other end of this device gives a clear view of the organs and tissues inside the abdomen.

The surgeon monitors the pictures externally through a screen, locates the region of the hernia, and treats it accordingly. The treatment may also involve the use of surgical mesh for additional reinforcement or support around the abdominal wall. Laparoscopy is considered a modern approach for inguinal hernia treatment due to the following characteristics -

  • Minimal incision
  • Resume work within two to three days after the treatment.
  • Almost no blood loss
  • Chances of reoccurrence are almost nil

Surgical mesh is an integral part of hernia repair surgery. It is a medical device that supports the damaged tissues around the hernia. The surgeons use surgical mesh during the invasive treatment to add extra strength or reinforcement to the abdominal wall. The abdominal wall can lose its strength due to aging, which can increase the chances of recurrence. Surgery via hernia mesh can decrease the chances of recurrence.

What are the types of Inguinal Hernia?

There are four types of inguinal hernias that can occur in the patient. These types are based on the complexity of inguinal hernia. These types are as follows -

Direct inguinal hernia - This type of hernia usually occurs in males due to excessive lifting, straining that causes weakness in the abdominal wall.

Indirect inguinal hernia - This type of hernia occurs as a result of a defect in the abdominal wall during birth. It usually occurs later in life as the abdominal wall weakens with age.

Strangulated inguinal hernia - When an inguinal hernia is left untreated, the blood supply to the intestine can be cut off from the intestine. This can lead to strangulation, which is a very serious complication. Seek medical attention immediately if there is a chance of incarceration or strangulation. Some of the symptoms of a strangulated hernia are -

  • Fever
  • Fatigue
  • Acute pain in the abdomen
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Blood in stools

Incarcerated inguinal hernia - Incarceration is a complication of inguinal hernia that can lead to some severe damage. In this, the tissues or fats from the intestine get stuck in the hernial sac, and it becomes difficult to push it back. It is considered a serious complication and must be prevented.

What happens if you do not treat inguinal hernia in time?

A hernia is not a serious condition, but it can lead to complications if left untreated. You can experience mild pain and wouldn’t even require surgery. But it is not advisable to leave inguinal hernia untreated. The protrusion may worsen over time and turn into strangulation or incarceration if adequate treatment is not provided. Inguinal hernia may not increase in size in some cases, but it will definitely not decrease in size. Hence, it is advisable to treat inguinal hernia in time.
