Yes: A femoral hernia is at the highest risk of what we call incarceration. Incarceration is when then intestine becomes stuck in the hernia and will no longer go back into your abdomen. This type of hernia can be repaired easily with surgery by laparoscopy or a small groin incision. It is best to all your doctor for a surgeon he/she trusts on an elective basis before becoming an emergency.
