Inguinal hernias more common in men

Posted on March 6th, 2012 No Comments

Inguinal hernias are the most common type of hernias that occur in individuals in the United States. More than 70 percent of all hernia cases reported each year are inguinal hernias.

Men are five times more likely to develop an inguinal hernia due to their anatomical structure in the groin area. Hernias may produce constant pain that is only alleviated by lying down, or they could have no pain associated with them at all. Obesity, an enlarged prostate, and poor health can all contribute to the development of an inguinal hernia.

Surgery is required in order to repair these types of hernias. The chance to redevelop an inguinal hernia is very low after surgery, only occurring in 1-3 percent of all patients.

AlloDerm is a surgical mesh that is commonly used in hernia repair surgeries. This surgical mesh has been associated with several complications and side effects. If you underwent hernia surgery where this mesh was used, and developed a serious side effect, please contact the AlloDerm lawsuit lawyers of Williams Hart by calling 800-761-3187 today.
