Symptoms of a hernia?


The most important symptom is a bulge, in particular a reducible bulge. Pain is another symptom but it is only present in 50% of patients with a hernia. There are many other symptoms but I caution patients that the proper diagnosis is not based on a simple check list of symptoms.
