Hernia Repair and Male Fertility
amyaalc posted:
A hernia occurs when an internal organ protrudes through a gap or opening in the wall around it. The two most common types of hernias are hiatal hernia and inguinal or groin hernia.

Hernias do not go away by themselves. They do not improve with time. The only treatment of a hernia is surgery to repair it. Surgery can repair most inguinal hernias in a short and simple operation. Unless specific attention is taken to avoid injury to the male reproductive structures, male fertility can be jeopardized during a hernia repair.
