What is Hernia?


A hernia is a tear in your muscle or tissue that allows part of your insides to bulge out, which can be a bulge of an internal organ or your intestines. Sometimes the hernia is visible, depending on its location and size. Certain activities, like bending over or lifting heavy objects, can worsen the condition. If you experience persistent pain, swelling, or a noticeable bulge, especially during physical activity or lifting, it's important to consult a doctor promptly. Additionally, seek medical attention if the hernia becomes tender, red, or hard to the touch, as these may indicate complications requiring immediate evaluation and treatment. #HerniaAwarenessMonth
