There are also other types of hernia found in the abdomen, such as hiatal hernia, diaphragmatic hernia, and obturator hernia.
The most common symptom of a hernia is a bulge that appears when walking or exercising that may disappear when you lay flat. It may or may not be painful. A bulge that doesn’t go away and severe abdominal pain can be signs of an incarcerated hernia, which can lead to strangulated hernia that requires emergency surgery.
