  • Here Is Everything You Need to Know About Inguinal Hernia Posted on 05/04/2023In Health WORDS ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR DR KUMAR HARI RAJAH & ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR DR SOMANATHAN M N MENON FEATURED EXPERTS ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR DR KUMAR HARI RAJAH School of Medicine Faculty of Health & Medical Sciences Taylor’s University ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR DR SOMANATHAN M N MENON School of Medicine Faculty of Health & Medical Sciences Taylor’s University You may have heard of the term ‘hernia’ or ‘angin pasang’ once or twice before. Affecting both women and more commonly, men, many seek medical attention for reducible swellings which were discovered incidentally or swelling which suddenly appears during a period of physical straining. WHAT IS HERNIA? A hernia is defined as a protrusion, bulge, or projection of an organ or a part of an organ through the body wall that normally goes away on lying down. They are extremely common and often seen in the groin. Types of hernia. Click on the image to view a larger, clearer version. Common risk factors Being a male Family history Smoking Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease or COPD Low body mass index or BMI High intra-abdominal pressure Collagen vascular disease Thoracic or abdominal aortic aneurysm History of open appendectomy Undergoing peritoneal dialysis INGUINAL HERNIA The protrusion occurs through the inguinal canal in the body’s anterior abdominal wall. By far the most common medical conditions in which primary care physicians refer patients for surgery, comprising approximately 96 percent of all groin hernias. Generally, inguinal hernia affects all ages, but the incidence increases with regards to age. Women manifest inguinal hernia later with a median age of 60 to 79 years, unlike that of men which is 10 years earlier. Inguinal hernias are traditionally classified as one of the following three types: Direct hernia. The hernia sac bulges directly through the posterior wall of the inguinal canal. It usually occurs in men over 40 years of age. Indirect hernia, which passes through the internal inguinal ring alongside the spermatic cord, following the coursing of the inguinal canal. Combined hernia. The hernia sacs are on both sides of the inferior epigastric vessels. SIGNS THAT YOU MAY HAVE INGUINAL HERNIA A bulge in the area on either side of the pubic bone; there may be a burning, gurgling or aching sensation at the bulge. For male patients, pain and swelling can occasionally occur around the testicles, when the protruding intestine descends into the scrotum. Pain or discomfort in the groin, especially when bending over, coughing, or lifting. DIAGNOSING INGUINAL HERNIA Physical examination Most early inguinal hernias can be diagnosed by careful physical examination. The physical examination begins by carefully inspecting the inguinal areas for bulges while the patient is standing. Then, the patient would be asked to cough or strain down (Valsalva manoeuvre) while the physician observes for bulges. Imaging Alth
