Epigastric Hernia

An epigastric hernia occurs when fat or tissue pushes through a weak area in the wall of the abdomen, between the breastbone and the naval. Because this type of hernia is usually very small, the risk of strangulation is low. However, a hernia in this area still requires prompt medical attention to ensure the patient’s long-term safety.

If you suspect you have a hernia, or you have a protruding bulge near the groin or abdomen, it is important to seek immediate evaluation at the Los Angeles Hernia Center. Untreated hernias can lead to irreversible damage and the development of life-threatening complications, so time is of the essence.
