Hernia symptoms are usually related to the bulge caused by hernias. In the early stages, you only notice this little lump that doesn’t hurt when touched. If the disease advances the bulge or breaks, as some specialists call it, it becomes painful and continues to swallow. The lump becomes more visible when you cough or sneeze, and in most cases it can be pushed back by hand, but it comes out in a few minutes. If it cannot be pushed back, it is possible that you have a strangled hernia.
If you have strangled a hernia, the blood supply to the squeezing tissue or organ has been interrupted. In this case, you need to see a doctor in a short time, as the situation can worsen over time.
Even if you have an asymptomatic reducible hernia, the signs and symptoms are slightly different.
Pain may first appear before the affected area begins to swallow and the lump is discovered. In addition to the original knot, you can discover another knot in the groin or abdominal wall. The size of the inguinal hernia can vary depending on the position. He is taller when standing and smaller when lying down.
As the name suggests, irreducible hernias cannot be pushed back. This usually means that an old inguinal hernia changes and complications can occur. It can easily lead to tissue strangulation. It also has some other symptoms like vomiting.
Strangulated hernia, a form that is more dangerous, as mentioned earlier, strangles an organ or tissue and disrupts blood supply. This type of hernia can also cause vomiting and the strangulated area is always painful.
Strangulated hernia needs to be operated on quickly, but hernia surgery is a simple operation that is successful in almost all cases so you don’t have to worry about delaying it.
