Every year, millions of Americans undergo a common pain called a “Hernia.” This pain typically involves a breaking point within your tissue that allows for an organ to fill through the damaged tissue – thus leaving a rather unsightly bump. For many, surgery may seem like the only remedy to this pain. Since these surgeries often result in the use of hernia mesh implants, patients should be aware of the dangers of this implant before agreeing to go through with the procedure. Since some patients may not have successful results from the Hernia Mesh, our attorneys have since then decided to step in and defend these Hernia victims’ rights.
For many, hernias often occur within the injured person’s abdomen. Though commonly found in the abdomen, these hernias can also be found in the upper thigh, around the belly button and even within the groin region. Below, you will find a few different examples of ways you may distinguish the various types hernias.
These hernias are more common than others. According to the British Hernia Centre (BHC), Inguinal Hernias make up around 70% of all hernia cases. Inguinal hernias often occur when the persons’ intestines push through a weak spot within the abdomen, usually in the inguinal canal. The inguinal canal is where many can find the spermatic cord, in which holds the testicles in men. In women, the inguinal canal houses the uterus.
An Umbilical Hernia can be commonly found within infants under 6 months of age. When this happens, a bulge can be seen near (or within) the belly button. These particular hernias are the only kind of hernias that are able to disappear on its own by the time the child has reached a year of age. If the Hernia has not disappeared after a year of age, surgery may be offered to solve such problem.
These type of Hernias usually occur after receiving surgery within the abdominal area. Since the surgery has weakened the abdominal area, this may have allowed for the surrounding tissue to weaken, allowing intestines to puncture through the weakened area.
