Signs Of Stomach Hernia
What does it mean when your stomach hurts and feels nauseous when you drink juices or water? Sign of a hiatus hernia?
Not necessarily: Your symptoms sound nonspecific. Generally speaking, only large hiatal (also called paraesophageal) hernias cause symptoms that may include difficulty swallowing, feeling full quickly, and chest pain commonly described as the sensation a balloon is trying to burst inside.

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. Many hernias develop during fetal life and become evident in childhood or as an adult. Some develop following a prior abdominal operation. The cornerstone ...Read more
Would an ultrasound of abdomen show hernia? If you're testicles hang very low-stomach protrudes out when empty not overweight, signs of what? Age 23
Physical Exam Best: A hernia is a hole in the abdominal wall through which the inner layer of the abdominal cavity stretches thru, creating a sac.

Nope.: The hiatus is the hole in the diaphragm thru which the esophagus passes to enter into the abdominal cavity; a hiatal hernia is an enlargement of this hole. It cannot be seen nor touched on physical examination. In contrast, a ventral hernia may cause the abdomen to protrude, as can a separation of the rectus muscles very common in men who are "round"in the midsection: this is called diastasis. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
