Protrusion of abdominal contents like omentum or the intestine through an anatomical defect especially in the groin region. These present as progressively increasing swelling which increases in size on abdominal straining and sometimes descending into the scrotum. Most often straining while passing motion, straining while passing urine, chronic cough or lifting heavy weights can pre-dispose to hernia formation. Rarely the hernia can get obstructed and suddenly become extremely painful and will require emergency surgery. But otherwise all inguinal herniae will require surgical correction.
