Inguinal Hernia

An inguinal hernia occurs when tissue or organs protrude through a weak spot in the inguinal canal, which is located near the groin. This type of hernia is commonly called a testicular hernia in men.

Inguinal hernias are more common in men than women, because the inguinal canal is naturally weaker in males. However, women and girls can experience this type of hernia as well. Over time, inguinal hernias tend to increase in size as the area becomes weaker and more tissue bulges through.

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.
