Symptoms of a hernia include localized swelling, pain or discomfort on the surface of the abdomen or in the groin area.
A hernia can also be painless and only appear as a bulge.
The pain may be intermittent or constant, depending on the amount of pressure in the abdomen.
Constant, intense pain at a swollen site may be a surgical emergency and should be consulted to Surgeon immediately.
