Men and women of all ages can have hernias. Hernias usually occur either because of a natural weakness in the abdominal wall or from excessive strain on the abdominal wall, such as the strain from heavy lifting, substantial weight gain, persistent coughing. There are several types of hernias and if some are not treated in a timely manner they may become problematic and even life threatening. Please join Dr. James Wooldridge as he discusses various types of hernias and their treatment.
