There are many kinds of diseases in the world. Some of these diseases are common while others are not. Inguinal hernia is a disease that is not so common, though there are people who might be suffering from it without knowing. Inguinal hernia occurs mainly in men (males) approximately some two months prior to birth. This happens in a way that the testicles move down to the scrotum via a gap that is in the groin. This is then followed by spermatic tubes that later on are used in conveying sperm to the penis from the testicles. This gap is in most cases tightly closed and edgy, relaxing enough to ensure sperm squeeze through. When the gap becomes weak from within it causes inguinal hernia.

Inguinal hernia is caused by various superficial factors like pulling something, lifting heavy weight, over exaggeration in sports and so on. However, the actual strain develops for a long and if you happen to read this before you develop it, then you can b able to avoid inguinal hernia.

Inguinal Canal
This is the gap that is aforementioned. It is about 4cm long and is used to pass sperms from testicles to the urethra canal where it mixes with some fluids to ensure that it swims strongly. When the sperms pass through it, it relaxes by some mm of width which are enough to allow it to pass, and also leave it to relax again. This gap can be strained by lifting or coughing which lead to a bulge.

  • Toilet training during childhood that might cause extreme anal sphincter control
  • Bad bowel habits (this entails waiting for long until the pressure is high and irresistible prior to gong to the toilet)
