    the epigastric area of the abdomen, which is situated over the belly button and beneath the ribcage. If an epigastric hernia occurs in your body, you might have the option to feel it when there is pressure on the abdominal wall, for example, when you cough, laugh, or weigh down to have a bowel movement. You will also experience pain or tenderness around where the hernia is located.
  4. Femoral hernia A femoral hernia happens when tissue pushes through

    a weak point in the crotch or inward thigh. The hernia may feel like a little to medium-sized bulge in the crotch. An expected 2 to 4 percent of all hernias that happen in the crotch are femoral ones. Women experience femoral hernias more regularly than men. A femoral hernia can be a reason for worry because of the femoral artery and vein being close by. It’s conceivable the hernia could influence these veins and block the bloodstream to and from the leg. Due to this, doctors quite often attempt to address a femoral hernia with a surgical procedure.
  5. Hiatal hernia A hiatal hernia is a condition that happens

    when an individual’s stomach swells through a frail point in the diaphragm, a muscle that isolates the lungs from the abdominal organs. If you have a hiatal hernia, you’re bound to have issues with acid reflux. A few people are born with a hiatal hernia, while others form one as they age. Hiatal hernias are distinguished into types — from type I to IV — relying upon where they are found. An expected 95 percent of hiatal hernias are type I: With these hernias, the stomach stays in position, yet the area where the throat meets the stomach slides over the diaphragm.

  6. Incisional hernia An incisional hernia can happen after an individual

    has stomach surgery, which normally includes a cut down the center of the stomach. If the surgical incisions don’t heal properly, that individual can be more vulnerable to building up a hernia.

    the intestine system or fat lumps through the lower abdominal wall. The bulge generally experiences the inguinal channel, which is situated in the crotch area.

    be risky since they can get strangulated or incarcerated.
