Any unnatural bulge on your body is troubling, and when it’s a painful hernia, you want to know how to treat it. Anyone can develop a hernia, from infants to adults. A hernia occurs when an organ pushes through a portion of muscle or other tissue that’s weak, most often somewhere in the abdominal area. Surgery can treat most types of hernia, though some hernias may heal with time and lifestyle changes, depending on the type. Types of hernias include inguinal hernia, femoral hernia, epigastric hernia, umbilical hernia, incisional hernia, hiatal hernia, and rectal hernia.
