Inguinal hernia is a common problem that may face every man. At its core it is nothing like protrusion of internal organs from the stomach outward – in a kind of bag of skin that forms in the groin area, and is called herniation protrusion.
In men the inguinal canal is “covered” inside connective tissue and muscles. If they can’t handle internal pressure in the abdominal cavity, begin to stretch, passing through the inguinal canal into the scrotum.Despite the fact that much more common inguinal hernias, due to the anatomical structure, the formation of men, they affected and women, although the mechanism of formation of inguinal hernia, they have somewhat different, the essence remains the same.
Weakness of the intrinsic muscles can be caused by a number of reasons. It is not only the age and related senile changes in the body, but also harmful habits, not only alcohol and cigarettes, but also excessive food, which leads to obesity.
Occur inguinal hernia, maybe even in childhood, at a time when there is a lowering of the testicles into the scrotum. In this case we speak of pathology of innate nature.
Very often, an inguinal hernia occurs in athletes, powerlifters, weightlifters, gymnasts experiencing constant and very high physical exertion.
In the General case to get inguinal hernia can simply unsuccessfully raised the severity at home or at the cottage.
The first sign of an inguinal hernia is a small lump, which is easily detectable with your fingers across the scrotum. This education is absolutely painless and if it to push, or to adopt the supine position, completely disappears. However, if you do not pay for inguinal hernia attention, its size will continue to grow and, at one point, it will no longer reduce a ago. Moreover in the place where the fallen internal organs pass through the inguinal canal occurs pinched, the blood flow to them stops, and tissues die off, which can lead to death.

If earlier inguinal hernia is almost certainly meant the end of sports career and greatly limited physical activity in General, disturbing their regular recurrence, today the situation is completely different.
