Causes of Hernia:

Main cause: weakness or opening in muscle/connective tissue.

Risk factors: heavy lifting, chronic coughing, obesity, pregnancy.

Congenital factors: prematurity, cystic fibrosis, connective tissue disorders.

Diaphragmatic hernias and hiatal hernias have different complications.
Congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) affects fetal organ development.

Seek medical attention for any hernia pain, especially with other symptoms.

Diagnosis:

Diagnosis often through physical exam, sometimes with imaging tests.

Physical exam includes visual inspection, palpation, and positional changes.

Imaging tests like CT scans may be necessary for certain types of hernias.

Treatment:

Surgical repair is common treatment, but watchful waiting may be appropriate for small hernias.

Surgery usually minor, with laparoscopic options available.
Umbilical hernias in babies may close on their own but sometimes require repair.

Hiatal hernias may need repair if causing chronic acid reflux.
