Brief Answer:
Cannot be treated with medication

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

hernias cannot be treated with medications. If the hernia is causing symptoms, then only surgical correction may solve your problem. The worst thing with hernias is their potential for complications. You'd better find a general surgeon to have a look at it.

Kind Regards!

Brief Answer:
bandages won't help

Detailed Answer:
Unfortunately, bandages won't help. If you're having symptoms, only surgery will help.

A hernia is an abnormal opening of the muscular tissue which allows the protrusion of the intestines through it. The radiologist refers to the diameter of this opening.

Kind Regards,
