Hernias are, by definition, a defect in the muscle container of the abdominal wall. A hernia (rupture) is usually noticed as a lump, commonly in the groin or the umbilical region.
It appears when a portion of the tissue which lines the abdominal cavity (peritoneum) breaks through a weakened area of the abdominal wall. This can give rise to discomfort as the hernia enlarges and can sometimes be dangerous if a piece of intestine becomes trapped ('strangulated') inside.

ni yg aku dpt dr internet.. those yg ade education in medical kindly pls explain what is hernia (in malay pls) so tat ppl out there may know n educate themselves about this illness, symtom n treatment.

other word to hernia is angin pasang.. betui ka?

p/s: one of my friend is admitted in sg buloh hosp becos of tis illness.
