A medical condition called Hernia occurs when an organ pushes through an opening in the muscle or tissue that holds it in place. For example, the intestines may break through a weakened area in the abdominal wall. 

Hernias are more common in the abdomen, but they can also appear in the upper thigh, belly button, and groin areas. Most hernias are not immediately life threatening, but they don’t go away on their own and can require surgery to prevent potentially dangerous complications.

Common causes of muscle weakness include:

• Failure of the abdominal wall to close properly in the womb, which is a congenital defect
• Age
• Chronic coughing
• Damage from injury or surgery

The factors that increase your risk of developing a hernia include:

• A personal or family history of hernias
• Being overweight or obese
• A chronic cough
• Chronic constipation
• Smoking, which can trigger a chronic cough
Whether you like it or not, you need treatment depends on the size of your hernia and the severity of your symptoms. Your doctor may simply monitor your hernia for possible complications. Watch this video below.
