Inguinal Hernia

by Kevin Pederson


The word inguinal hernia elicits dread in nearly every male. Abdominal wall hernia accounts for considerable mortality and morbidity in men. Certain genes controlling growth and interactions with other normal cells are apparently abnormal in structure or regulation in the cells of the inguinal canal. Males of all ages develop hernia symptoms, and a wide variety of organs are affected. The incidence of many causes of hernia increases as the fourth to sixth power of age, so that as males live longer, many more will develop the disease. Apart from individual suffering, the economic burden to society is immense.

Hernia surgery covers the prevention of physical abnormalities and conditions that weakens and prevents the abdominal wall of the male body from providing its basic roles to the human body. The concept of inguinal hernia implies that man has the natural inclination towards an unhealthy system. However, without sufficient knowledge and understanding on health hazards regarding the maintenance of a healthy body, man is likely to stray from the natural tendency towards maintaining a healthy body. Nursing care has taken the revolutionary stand of assuming the task of providing the necessary knowledge about health hazards to empower males to make decisions on maintaining a healthy body as well as the traditional role of providing care for male ailing patients with abdominal wall hernia.

The different components and elements can be brought in eventually with cautious inspection to establish which intercession has constructive (or adverse) consequences. Responsiveness of other disorders that are frequent among those with inguinal hernia will assist in early detection, cure, or prevention. Punctual acknowledgment and efficient administration of acute exacerbations of hernia symptoms are necessary. Moreover, facts from health studies advocates that diet, physical activity, and smoking habits in the later part of a person’s life may have an effect with health risk. Corresponding to medical or surgical intercessions, such lifestyle alterations are comparatively low risk, low rate, and extensively pertinent. Consequently, even small alterations in risk because of these elements may possibly be important on a population level.

Inguinal hernia in males has multifactor etiologies. Poverty, malnutrition, unhealthy lifestyles and hereditary reasons and environmental hazards play a significant role as causal factors of abdominal wall hernia in males. Inguinal hernia is the most common condition among males and carries with it the highest rate of all hereditary conditions affecting this sex. Hernia symptoms are rare in women, but when it does occur, it is usually not recognized, until late and thus the results of hernia surgery are poor.

The evidence that endogenous sex hormones influence risk of inguinal hernia has been reviewed extensively elsewhere; for pubertal males, however, the modulation of abdominal wall hernia is much more important. The main difference between high and low risk males for inguinal hernia is the persistent difference in testosterone secondary to early and late puberty.
