Ingunious Hernia in Groin area
Dec 21, 2000

What causes an Ingunerious Hernia in Groin area - does surgery help - are lymph nodes involved, etc.

Response from Dr. Boyle

An inguinal hernia is caused by a weakness or hole in the abdominal wall. Hernias can be caused by a number of things that weaken the abdominal wall but it is not associated with lymph nodes. Surgery is the appropriate treatment for a hernia under most circumstances. BB
