Health Insurance for Hernia
A study shows that about 25% of males and 2% of females develop hernias in India. A hernia is a medical term for bulging of an organ or tissue through the weakness or hole in a muscular wall. It is commonly found in the abdomen, but can also appear in the groin, belly button, upper stomach and surgical scar.
There are various types of a hernia. An Inguinal hernia is the most common type of a hernia, and it occurs when the intestines bulge through weak spots in the lower abdominal wall. A hernia is caused due to weakness or strain on the body because of heavy weight lifting, sudden weight gain, persistent cough or being pregnant.
Some of the symptoms of a hernia to watch out for are:
Pain and discomfort in affected area
Feeling of heaviness in the abdomen
Burning, aching at sight of bulge
Chest pain in case of a hiatal hernia
Difficulty in swallowing
