Hernia Update

Tuesday, April 23, 2019
5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Do you think you might have a hernia? Common symptoms for hernias include nausea, groin pain, and a bulge in the lower abdomen. Many people may walk around for years with a hernia. They either do not know it or they want to ignore it. The most common type of hernia occurs when there is a tear or weakness in the abdominal wall muscles and an organ (most often the intestines) or body fat may push out of its normal place in the abdomen. This bulge or protrusion is generally known as a hernia. Though hernias are often painless, they can cause discomfort and should never be ignored. Most hernias aren’t life threatening, but they don’t go away on their own. Without treatment they can become more painful. Sometimes they require surgery to prevent potentially dangerous complications.

 Join us Tuesday, April 23, 5:00 pm as University Hospital Medical Center’s surgeon Vineeta Gahlawat will explain the ins and outs of hernias and their treatments. 663 East Main Street, Ashland.
