What Is a Hernia Truss?

Q:
What is a hernia truss?

A:
A hernia truss is a supportive undergarment for men designed to keep the protruding tissue in place and relieve discomfort. If you have an inguinal hernia, a hernia truss can help you feel more comfortable temporarily, but it doesn’t treat the hernia.

Talk to your doctor if you want to use a truss because a truss might make the hernia worse.
