"Though a common disease, hernia is often ignored initially. Mostly because its not always severly painful. At times, the pain reduces after sometime and people mistake it for healing. The truth is, hernia never resolves without a surgical intervention. And delaying the surgery only worsens the conditions and risks severe pain, internal bleeding, stangulation and organ death. This, then intensifies the treatment and makes the surgery complicated. So I'll suggest, you note for any bodily change or pain and seek immediate diagnosis if you fear hernia. Once detected, plan a surgery as soon as possible. Hernia treatment is one of the most common and safe procedures. Generally, it takes less than 30 minutes and you can go home the same day."
