  • A hernia in simple terms is a hole where something protrudes through. A hernia is most commonly found between the diaphragm and the symphysis pubis. Hernias are not painful unless they strangulate but feel uncomfortable.

    It is normally the intestine or fat around the intestine that protrudes through the hole and causes the lump that can be seen and felt. This lump normally pops out when abdominal pressure increases i.e when you cough or lift something heavy. The lump can be pushed in by gentling massaging it.

    Many people have abdominal hernias. As much as 10% of the population develop some type of a hernia during life. More than a half million hernia operations are performed in the United States each year.

    Many people can happily live with a hernia. Sometimes, however hernias might become larger and cause a medical emergency as tissue becomes trapped in the outpouching, loses its blood supply and dies.

What is the purpose of this scan?

The hernia ultrasound scan will evaluate the area of suspected hernia, for example:

  • Epigastric region
  • Umbilical region
  • General groin region
  • Inguinal canal
  • The area in the abdomen where the suspected hernia is.

What should I expect during the soft tissue ultrasound scan?

Our sonographer will explaine the procedure before the scan.

You will be asked to lie on the examination table and expose the area, where the lump is. A small amount of gel will be placed on the skin and the ultrasound probe will be moved in different directions to evaluate the area with the swelling.

During and after the examination our sonographer will discuss with you the finding and a report will be issued to take away.
