No bulge, No hernia.: The best test for a hernia is a physical examination by an experienced hernia surgeon. Cts or ultrasounds can identify hernias but neither are 100%. The most common symptom associated w/a hernia is a bulge that protrudes w/exertion. Most people note only mild discomfort unless intestine is incarcerated w/in the hernia (in which case one may have "obstructive" symptoms). ...Read more

A hernia is a hole in the abdominal wall thru which the inner lining protrudes thru, creating a sac. Organs from within the abdominal cavity, such as the intestine, can protrude thru the hole and get stuck in the sac.

Sounds like: You probably have an inguinal (groin) hernia. The discomfort you describe can be due to a hernia. Hernias can slowly grow over time. Follow up with your doctor & follow their recommendations. Surgical repair of the hernia will likely become necessary at some point in time. ...Read more

Surgical consult: You should see a doctor, preferably a surgeon with experience in hernia repair. Probably the best option for you would be a laparoscopic repair of both hernias, presuming you are referring to groin hernias. This should be done by someone with expertise in this technique, but the best approach can only be determined after a proper interview and examination. ...Read more

Two issues: you have a hernia for 15 years. You have a strong fear of surgery. For the fear you should talk to your doctor and get help. This could really hinder your life. For the hernia if it is not too big the surgery is safe and can be done with a camera. You may have a new joy in life after surgery. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Not dangerous: I'm not quite sure how to put together this constellation if symptoms other than normal scarring after an operation. I ca say that it does not sound like there is anything dangerous going on. If you're concerned, see your hernia surgeon for an exam. Hope this helps! ...Read more

Esophagus: I am thinking this is more likely due to a spasm in the esophagus than a hernia. If they are disturbing then I would see your MD who may recommend a gastroscopy. ...Read more

See a surgeon: Best to see a general surgeon for their opinion. That is an unusual location for a hernia unless you had prior surgery at that site. Pain in a hernia can be concerning. Depends on your overall health as to surgical risks and benefits. ...Read more
