Groin Hernia

 There are three types of groin hernias that can occur in both males and females:

  1. Inguinal Hernia - (most common)—a bulge in the groin (or scrotal area in men)
    • Direct
    • Indirect
  1. Femoral Hernia - a bulge in the groin, upper thigh, or labia (in women)
  2. Obturator Hernia  - a rare type of hernia of the pelvic floor in which the pelvic or abdominal contents protrude through the obturator foramen
