A hernia occurs when an organ pushes through an opening in the muscle or tissue that holds it in place. For example, the intestines may break through a weakened area in the abdominal wall. Hernias are most common in the abdomen, but they could also appear in the upper thigh, belly button, and groin area.

Some babies might be born with a hernia. Any factor that causes the ventricular tachycardia to rise, causes a hernia in the adult.

Factors of Ventricular Tachycardia are: constipation, gonorrhea, enlargement of the prostate gland, cancerous and non-cancerous tubers in the abdomen, liver pests and other factors cause a hernia.

A hernia has no treatment in Afghanistan without surgery. we have two types of hernia surgery: open surgery and Laser Surgery. An earlier operation is better. Its operation is very easy. The patient doesn’t need to be in bed after the operation.
