An inguinal hernia occurs when tissue, such as part of the intestine, protrudes through a weak point or tear in the abdominal muscles: The resulting bulge can be painful, especially when you cough, bend over or lift a heavy object. Inguinal hernias are more common in men. A hernia truss is a supportive undergarment for men designed to keep the protruding tissue in place and relieve discomfort. If you have an inguinal hernia, a hernia truss can help you feel more comfortable temporarily, but it doesn't treat the hernia. Talk to your doctor if you want to use a truss because a truss might make the hernia worse. It should be used temporarily, if at all. Surgery is usually needed to repair a hernia. Untreated, a hernia can grow, and serious, even life-threatening, complications can occur. If your hernia is small and isn't bothering you, your doctor may recommend watchful waiting. If your hernia is causing discomfort, don't rely on a hernia truss. See your doctor to discuss treatment options. ...Read more

When is surgery required for an umbilical hernia? My 15 month old still has one. He had hernia surgery@2months for hernias in his groin area.
Maybe never!: 95% or more of umbilical hernias resolve by 4 years old. If it hasn't resolved by then, your child's doctor can refer you to a surgeon. Tape, belly bands, and quarters ('family remedies') actually tend to prevent umbilical hernias from resolving. Unless intestine gets strangulated in the hernia, best to leave it alone for now. ...Read moreSee 5 more doctor answers
See a surgeon: Most umbilical hernia in infancy resolve spontanously. Meaning the baby outgrows the condition. But if it is causing pain then you must take your baby to see a pediatric general surgeon to evaluate if the condition is a surgical case and should be repaired. And if your baby has been fine until now and all of a sudden gets fussy when the hernia is touched, more urgent to get seen. ...Read more
