Post Does a Hernia always hurt when pushed on???

If I was to push on the spot where I think I might have a Hernia.... would it hurt? (this could give me a better idea if I should be concerned or not)


thanks

You would probably have some pain or discomfort but you would most likely know if you had a hernia by the bulging in that area. If there is no bulging (even if you can reduce it) then it may not be a hernia.

You didn't say where the pain is - is on the lower part
of your abdomen on one side? If it is you could be pushing an ovary (tender during ovulation).

Sorry Erikn, I guess I was reading Erika. My son had a hernia repair when he was very young and I will try to recall what was said, but look up more recent information. If there is pain and tenderness it could be what is called strangulation. I'll just go get my medical book -

From World Book - Abdominal pain, pain over the hernia, and vomiting indicate a condition known as strangulation. The blood supply withing the strangulated hernia is cut off and the herniated tissue dies unless an operation is performed. A femoral hernia on the inside of the upper thigh is most likely to become strangulated because the hole is small and the ligament above the femoral artery is strong and tight.

Call your Doctor and tell him - you may need emergency surgery.

My son's hernia was called a bilateral inguinal hernia, both sides of his lower abdomen had not closed before birth. The umbilical hernia cleared itself up.

What kind of hernia do you have? How long have you had it? Has there ever been any pain before?

The poster said he doesn't know if he has a hernia so if he thinks it may be one then he should see a doc for a proper diagnosis. Hernia's usually bulge out at time so you would notice a hernia at times if you had one.

while I still have the feelings on the right side, it has generally more moved to the left side.... and up a bit... kind of where the colon would be ...I think. No, it's not colon cancer....
