A hernia is a weakness in the abdominal wall, that often results in bulging out of fat, which then occupies space under the skin. It appears like a sac and is usually formed due to weakness of abdominal muscles. The opening in the abdominal wall through which the fat or organs protrude is called the Hernia defect.
A hernia can affect anybody. It is found in both sexes, can occur at any age and sometimes infants may be born with it. The only solution for Hernia Treatment is surgery with millions of cases being treated every year.


1) A weakness of the abdominal wall muscles
2) Increased intra-abdominal pressure

A hernia is usually diagnosed by mere clinical examination with reference to the patient’s past history.
