A hernia occurs in an area of weakness and results in a bulge caused by the contents of a body cavity coming out of the area in which  they are normally contained. Hernias in different areas have different causes and may or may not cause symptoms like discomfort or pain. Although some hernias do not cause symptoms, repair may be recommended due to the chance of contents getting 'stuck', leading to an emergency.

I am happy to see you and advise on repair of your hernia, whatever the nature.
