How Is a Hernia Diagnosed?

Hernia is a clinical entity. A swelling which appears and disappears on pressure is a Hernia. Hernia is typically seen at a known site like groin, navel or previous abdominal scar.

In some cases when Hernia is suspected, but cannot be seen or felt high frequency sonography or MRI can be of help.

Complex Hernia and very large Hernia require CT Scan for further details.
