Dr. Peter J. Lydon answered:

I had an ultra sound today and was told i have an hernia in the abdomen, right side low near groin. is surgery usually necessary to repair? i

Possibly

Groin
Small, asymptomatic inguinal hernias in men can be safely watched. Repair only needs to be done if it is causing a problem. There are many excellent surgical options once the hernia needs repair including an endoscopic repair that avoids cutting any muscle in the groin.

Dr. Kirpal Singh answered:

I have a burning pain in the upper left abdomen. I was picking up heavy items during a move. How do I know if it's a hernia? Any home remedies?

Hard to say

Flank_pain
Hernia can be hard to diagnosed at home. Burning usually goes w nerve type pain or ulcer. If it is a hernia, it tends to get bigger and needs to b fixed but u will have to c a physician to make the diagnosis.

Dr. Mark Kuhnke answered:

Would it be considered a hernia if I've had lower right abdomen pain for 4 months that is getting worse with sitting or lifting? If so what do I do?

NOT NECESSARILY

Pain_in_right_upper_abdomen
A hernia, by definition, is a hole in the musculature, such as in your navel or groin, or in an old incision. You may just have a strain or pulled muscle. A good physical exam can delineate exactly what is going on, so get yourself to your doctor/surgeon. Good luck.

Dr. Michael sawyer answered:

Can excessive coughing/sneezing the days immediately following lapro inguinal hernia repair mess up the results? Severe pain in right lower abdomen.

Rare

Hernia_repair
It would be rare to have that happen especially with a laparoscopic approach where the increased abdominal pressure with coughing and sneezing presses the mesh against the defect. Probably just some irritation and strain in the operative area due to the coughing and sneezing.

Dr. Zahid Niazi answered:

I think I have a hernia. What are the symptoms? Is it necessary to have surgery right away? I had a C-section with a horizontal incision about 16 years ago. There is a slight bulge (golf ball to tangerine size) on my lower abdomen near the left end of whe

Consult a surgeon

Incision
Please see your primary care or your OB/GYN first but if the lump only appeared recently then it may not be related to your C-section. It could be an inguinal hernia or a femoral hernia and you will need a consultation and treatment by a surgeon. If indicated they may order a scan to rule out other issues or confirm the diagnosis.

I have to select a surgeon for ing. hernia surgery. one has lower degree but performs mostly hernias but lately too many come back with infection. other with superior degree but mostly performing on upper abdomen and least post surg. infection. plz help.?

Choose who you trust

Open-uri20121207-30573-19e5h6g
Ultimately, you must choose the surgeon you trust. I'm not sure what a "Lower" degree vs a "Superior" degree. We all have one degree - MD/DO. Others, like myself, have certification from the American Board of Surgery and are Fellows of the American College of Surgeons. All indicating that we have passed a number of milestones in training, ethical conduct and continued verification processes.

Your pains may be an indication of persistent refractory ulcer disease or of severe reflux. Were you previously diagnosed with Helicobacter pylori? I would suggest a follow-up visit with your gastroenterologist.

Dr. David Earle answered:

what are the causes of hernia in the abdomen?

Many

While the exact cause for a particular person may be unknown, there are many factors that are associated with hernia disease such as collagen disorders which can be genetically determined, previous surgery, infection, trauma, or congenital (born with it). Although relatively uncommon, coughing can cause a hernia in the groin. There also is likely more than one factor in the cause.
