A hernia occurs when an abdominal organ, typically your bowel, pushes through a tear in the muscle wall. This usually creates a visible lump on the skin. There are different types of hernia depending on where in the body they are. And they can happen for various reasons. Sometimes a hernia becomes noticeable after the strain of lifting a heavy object.
How we can help if you have a hernia
The treatment for a hernia is a surgical operation to repair the weakened muscle. A mesh is inserted over the problem area to reinforce the abdominal wall. This can be done by keyhole or open surgery, usually as a day case under general or local anaesthetic.
While testicular cancer is rare, it’s the most common cancer in men aged 15 to 49. If you are concerned that you have a lump or pain in your testicles, it’s best to get it checked out, as it may reassure you. There are many reasons why lumps could have formed and most are not testicular cancer. But it’s always best to have a check-up as early detection of problems can save lives.
Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men in the UK. Its causes aren’t clear, but we do know that if you have a male family member that has been diagnosed with the disease, there is an increased risk of you developing it. And the risk of getting prostate cancer gets higher as you get older. Come and see us for a check-up if you are worried, as early detection of problems can save lives.
