Doctor insights on:
Could a right abdominal buldge be related to uteran polyps? Buldge is caused by gas, I think. Not a hernia (had it checked). Ideas?
Not likely: It would more likely be a ventral hernia (a separation in the abdominal muscle wall allowing abdominal contents to protrude to the surface). Another possibility would be a lipoma (benign fatty tumor), cyst or malignancy. If it's growing, changing in size or hurting it needs to be evaluated. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My mom recently went through a incisional hernia operation and uterus removal a year back, what precautions she should take. ?
Dr on here stated could be PGAD or hernia. I did forget to mention constipation and low uterus? Would any of these tie to pinch feeling behind navel?
There may be an : Explanation - as I understand the question you are a pinched feeling behind the navel and a low uterus - I presume uterine prolapse? If so, maybe it's tugging on the urachus, which is a structure that used to be blood vessels to/from the navel while you were a fetus that has since before a ligament which goes from the bladder to the umbilicus. Other possibilities include endometriosis, adhesions, ...Read more

Visit with your regular doc. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Could what i think is a femoral hernia really be uterus cancer? Is this lump (approx. Size of a nickle) in conjunction with my 7mm gallbladder polyp?
2 different issues: As far as the femoral hernia it would usually present as a bulge in the inguinal area with straining. Given your age, uterine cancer is unlikely unless there is a strong family hx. As far as the GB polyp, at 7mm you can wait 6mo and repeat ultrasound. The other option is lap chole to remove GB. Removal of a GB poly is usually rec'd if polyp is larger than 10mm. You should see a surgeon. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

No.: A "hernia" commonly refers to a weakened area of the abdominal wall muscles. The resulting defect essentially provides a hole through which a loop of intestine can slide. This situation becomes dangerous if a loop of intestine becomes stuck outside the abdominal wall, leading to obstruction (blockage) or in worst case cutting off the blood supply to that segment of the intestine. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Nature/Nurture: Most hernias develop due to a "birth defect" of sorts, where natural holes in the abdominal wall present in fetal life fail to close. This may manifest itself at birth or require years of "exertion" before the hole reaches a size large enough to be evident. Other hernias are strictly "wear-and-tear" phenomena, although it is believed that they occur in-part due to inherently weak tissue. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
