An inguinal hernia is a condition where soft tissue bulges through a weak point in the abdominal muscles into the groin. Types include indirect (caused by a congenital birth defect in the abdominal wall) and direct (occurs most often in adulthood due to a weakness of the abdominal wall). Symptoms include pain, especially when a person coughs, bends, or lifts a heavy object. Treatments include surgery to repair the hernia.
