What is Hernia?
Hernia is a medical problem where a person experiences swelling in their body part via an unusual opening. Hernia mainly happens due to problems in the stomach or intestine. Because of the accumulation of a kind of tissue in a particular area, a lump is formed. This may not be visible when you are sitting or sleeping but it does bulges out when you are standing. In some cases, this lump may give you some pain and discomfort. There is no such symptom of hernia before the lump is being formed on your body part.
A hernia does not cause any such problem in living but may become problematic if not treated for long. People who smoke as well as elder people are at a higher risk of suffering from a hernia.

Causes of Hernia:
There are no particular causes of hernia, but there are some activities that promote the growth of the same. Also, there are some cases in which hernia is present in the children from the time of their birth. The reason behind it is their weak abdominal wall. Even in adults, the major cause of hernia is excessive pressure on the weak walls of the abdominal wall. People suffering from constipation exert pressure on these walls and thus the chances of getting hernia increase. Moreover, abdominal walls require some essential nutrients to maintain its strength. But when a person lacks those nutrients, then it can be the cause of weak abdominal walls and hence results in the hernia.
Excessive smoking for a long period of time can also make these walls weak. If your body experiences regular physical exertion, then the chances of suffering from the hernia increases. Furthermore, the people who are obese and overweight also have loose as well as weak abdominal walls, and thus the chances of getting hernia are greater as compared to a healthy person. Abdominal fluid also plays an important role in giving some strength to the abdominal walls. This is the reason why the lack of or problem in an abdominal fluid can also give rise to a hernia. Sometimes, when you have an injury, then some infections can also lead to a hernia. Aging is one of the major causes of hernia and thus, most patients of the same are elders.
Hernia Repair Surgery
Hernias come in all shapes and sizes. Different size hernias need different treatments! Small hernias can be repaired laparoscopically with the placement of a mesh with wide overlap with normal tissue. Large complex hernias and recurrent hernias usually need a specialized type of reconstruction of the abdominal wall so that the gap can be brought together and reinforced by a large mesh.
