Hernia Ultrasound Scan

 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 symptoms or very few symptoms. You may notice a swelling or lump in your tummy (abdomen) or groin that can often be pushed back in, or will disappear when you lie down. Coughing or straining may make the lump to re-appear.

 Types of hernias:  

Hernias can occur throughout the body, but most often develop in the areas of your body between your chest and hips.

Some of the more common types of hernia are:

  •  Inguinal hernias  

Inguinal hernias occur when fatty tissue or a part of your bowel pokes through into your groin at the top of your inner thigh.  This is the most common type of hernia and it mainly affects men. It is often associated with ageing and repeated strain on the abdomen.

  • Femoral hernias

Femoral hernias also occur when fatty tissue or a part of your bowel pokes through into your groin at the top of your inner thigh. They are much less common than inguinal hernias and tend to affect more women than men.  Like inguinal hernias, femoral hernias are also associated with ageing and repeated strain on the abdomen.  

  • Umbilical hernias  

Umbilical hernias occur when fatty tissue or a part of your bowel pokes through your abdomen near your belly button (navel).

I highly recommend SonoWorld. Mrs. Daniela Stan, who performed my pelvic scan, is a professional. Moreover, she really cares for the well-being of her patients. It was a pleasure to meet her.
