In brief: If you don't know ..

If you don't have any symptoms you probably don't have to worry.
Most hernias that are asymptomatic do not need to be .fixed. Symptoms such as cramps abdominal pain, nausea, bloating or a lump that bulges under your incision when u cough are possible symptoms of a hernia. See your doctor if concerned
