Hernia & Hydrocele


Managing Hernia and Hydrocele with Expert Care.

A hernia is a condition that occurs when an organ or tissue protrudes through a weak spot or opening in the surrounding muscle or connective tissue. This can result in a visible bulge or lump, which may be accompanied by discomfort or pain. Hernias can occur in various parts of the body, but the most common types are inguinal hernias, umbilical hernias, and hiatal hernias.

Hernias are usually diagnosed through a physical examination, and in some cases, imaging tests like ultrasound or CT scan may be performed. The treatment for a hernia typically involves surgical repair, especially if the hernia is causing symptoms or if there is a risk of complications such as incarceration or strangulation, which can cut off the blood supply to the herniated organ or tissue.

A hydrocele is a common condition that occurs when fluid accumulates in the sac surrounding the testes, leading to swelling in the scrotum. It can affect males of all ages, including newborns, but is most commonly seen in infants and older men.

Hydroceles are typically painless and usually harmless. They may vary in size and can be present on one or both sides of the scrotum. In infants, hydroceles often resolve on their own within the first year of life. However, if a hydrocele persists or grows larger, causes discomfort, or is associated with other symptoms, medical evaluation is necessary.
