Hernia occurs when an organ or fatty tissue squeezes through a weak spot in a surrounding muscle or connective tissue called fascia. The abdominal wall is made up of layers of different muscles and tissues. Weak spots may develop in these layers. Hernia is commonly seen in abdomen, and it also appear in the upper thigh, belly button and groin areas.

Inguinal Hernia :
These hernias occur when the intestines push through a weak spot or tear in the lower abdominal wall, often in the inguinal canal. THe inguinal canal is found in the groin. Inguinal hernia is commonly seen in men than women. This is because a man’s testicles descend through the inguinal canal shortly after birth, and the canal is supposed to close behind them.
