A hernia is a medical condition in which an organ or tissue protrudes through a weak area or tear in the muscle or connective tissue that would usually hold it in place. This can cause a noticeable lump or bulge to form under the skin, which is often accompanied by discomfort or pain. Hernias can occur in different parts of the body, including the abdomen, groin, and diaphragm. The most common types of hernias are inguinal hernias (in the groin), umbilical hernias (around the belly button), and hiatal hernias (in the diaphragm).
