Hernia's > How do you know you have a Hernia?

Hernias are usually detected by the patient due to swelling being present or by routine examination by a medical doctor. Swelling may come and go or may not be present at all. Often however, swelling or bulging occurs when a person is standing up or straining. A hernia may completely disappear from sight when lying down at night or when it is pushed back into the body.

Hernia’s may cause discomfort or pain and should not be left untreated as Hernia’s don’t get better over time, nor will they go away by themselves.
