What Happens If You Don't Get A Hernia Taken Care Of
Lots can happen: It depends on what kind of hernia it is. Nothing can happen or you can get an organ or part of an organ stuck in it. Twisting in the hernia can cut off blood supply and cause gangrene. I believe in "fix 'em when you find 'em". Others say if it doesn't bother you, leave it alone. You will have to decide with the help of your doctor.See 1 more doctor answer
Hernias: Will enlarge and become painful or cosmetically unacceptable. If it becomes painful, then it can incarcerate to strangulate, so it becomes urgent that you undergo surgical repair. Show it to a surgeon for an opinion on when it needs to be repaired.

Yes: You can develop a direct hernia from coughing, a tear in the fibrous floor of the inguinal canal, or enlarge an indirect hernia, a hernia present since birth that you were not aware of. A physical exam can determine if a hernia is present.
A hole: And abdominal wall or groin hernia is literally a hole in the abdominal wall through which abdominal contents may protrude, causing a lump and/or pain. Belly button hernias are very common in women, and though they are less common then men, women can get groin hernias as well. Hope this helps!
All over: Abdominal wall hernias occur in the groin, belly button, midline between the breast bainr and belly button, or off to the side of the belly button in the lower quadrants. Rarely can occur on the back. Typically seen as a lump under the skin that may cause discomfort, and feels like you can push it back in to the abdomen.See 1 more doctor answer
Yes: General surgeons generally repair hernias, however not all hernias are the same. They vary in location from the groin, to the diphragm (hiatal hernia), and vary in complexity from relatively straightforward to highly complex. Check the americas hernia society website to find surgeons interested in hernia repair and information about hernias.See 1 more doctor answer

Yes: Umbilical hernias are quite common in adults. Very often, a small hernia may be present at birth which may temporarily close off. In adulthood, stress to the abdominal wall that may occur with pregnancy, weight gain, excessive lifting, etc., may lead to this hernia re-forming.See 2 more doctor answers
