Link to the NHS Hernia website

NHS: Hernia

A hernia occurs when an internal part of the body pushes through a weakness in the muscle or surrounding tissue wall.

In many cases, hernias cause no or very few symptoms, although you may notice a swelling or lump in your tummy (abdomen) or groin.

The lump can often be pushed back in, or will disappear when you lie down. Coughing or straining may make the lump appear.
