A member asked:

Possible small hernia on lower right of abdomen. no pain, or signs of strangulation, if anything, opposite, more gas and loose bowel movements. insurance won't cover surgery. can i leave this be for now and not worry?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Yes: Yes you can, actually the only reason to do surgery is if the patient has discomfort or doesn't want it for aesthetic reasons, beside of course an strangulation or incarceration. Trying to strengthening the groups of muscles around the hernia may also help to restrain it.
