Inguinal hernia surgery
Inguinal hernia is a condition where a part of the intestine obtrudes out of lower abdomen, more commonly found in males. The protruding lump can be felt while coughing, lifting weight or even just while moving. It can become dangerous if the intestine gets stuck into it leading to obstruction or gangrene, hence it should be treated as early as possible.
