A hernia is a protrusion (lump) that results from part of a bodily organ or piece of fatty tissue slipping through a weakness in the abdominal wall. The most common hernias are inguinal hernias (groin hernias), the name relates to the location of the hernia.

Hernias appear as a lump or bulge when standing, or following coughing or straining.
