I think i may have a hernia

Ok, why do you think that? Do you feel something? Where?

I was coughing really hard last week when i was sick, felt something "Bubble" at one point when I coughed. Now I have swelling on the top of my pelvic area below my navel to the right a little. It goes away when I lie down or sit...but then comes back after standing for a while - small mass. doesn't hurt

Is it soft when you can feel it? Is it more noticeable when you bear down like when you are trying to defecate?

very soft and not hard...goes away when sitting down or lying down..comes back after standing- and not more noticeable when bearing down - goes away

Yes, there very well might be a hernia. The doctor will be able to tell after a full exam. Sometimes there is nothing to do about these if they are not causing any pain. However, often times they are repaired so that they don't cause problems in the future. Hope that helps.

I feel so much better today, and upon further investigation believe that there is a chance that the responses I got saved me from a serious, even life threatening situation. I am very grateful to the experts who answered me.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
