A hernia is a hole in the abdominal wall thru which the inner lining protrudes thru, creating a sac.

If umbilical hernia not cause pain but if person want treatment of it without surgery so what he/she do?

If umbilical hernia not cause pain but if person want treatment of it without surgery so what he/she do?

Surgery or wait/see: Watchful waiting can be an option for small umbilical hernias, where it's very unlikely for bowel to enter & get stuck (incarcerated). Large umbilical hernias can also be left alone if it's very unlikely for bowel to get incarcerated. However, only option for hernias of any sort is surgical repair to prevent painful incarceration & strangulation of bowel. Best to go see surgeon for his/her opinion. ...Read more

Hi...What treatment should I take for hiatal hernia? And how can I avoid stomach pain ?

Hi...What treatment should I take for hiatal hernia? And how can I avoid stomach pain ?

Depends on symptoms: Many hiatal hernias require no treatment at all. Often the hiatal hernia is associated with gastresophogeal reflux disease (gerd). Symptoms of gerd can be treated with over the counter antacids. If these fail, there are prescription strength acid blockers available. If these are ineffective you should see a gastroenerologist. Less than 5% of gerd related problems require surgical correction. ...Read more

Small, invisible, hard lump in thigh/groin area. light pain when pushed. occasional discomfort on its own. hernia? swollen lymph node? treatment?

Sometimes it: is difficult if not impossible to tell on physical exam alone whether an inguinal mass is an incarcerated hernia or an enlarged lymph node. Treatment is completely different for these conditions, so you need to see a doctor who can distinguish one from the other. Your doctor might even order an imaging test such as ultrasound. ...Read more

Can there be a natural remedy for acid reflux disease, barretts esophagus and hiatal hernia?

Can there be a natural remedy for acid reflux disease, barretts esophagus and hiatal hernia?

Weight loss, elevate: Keeping the intra-abdominal pressures low is the key to keeping food/acid from refluxing into your esophagus. If you keep your head about 30 degrees (using cinder blocks under the bed posts is an inexpensive way to do this) of the parallel, most reflux is prevented. Weight loss also reduces abdominal pressure and keeps the food where it should be. Good luck! ...Read more
