Are Hernia Symptoms More Common in Women?

Q:
Are hernia symptoms more common in women?

A:
In fact, hernias are much more common in males than females, because hernias are caused by weaknesses in the inguinal canal, and women are much more likely to have an inguinal canal that closes sufficiently.

Many women do show hernia symptoms, but some hernias in women are not noticeable and are only detected by a doctor during an examination.

To learn more you should go to a medical professional.
