If you have been feeling pain and pressure on your right side in the groin, it’s time to get it checked out. Femoral hernias can be very serious and should not be taken lightly. At Hollywood Diagnostics, we are a leader in the diagnostic field and have the latest state-of-the-art facility, and we provide the best care for our patients.
A femoral hernia is a condition where a pouch of tissue containing fat or part of the intestine pushes through a weak spot in the lower abdominal wall. This can cause a bulge on the right side of the groin area, which can be seen and felt. Symptoms of a femoral hernia include pain and/or discomfort when you stand, lift things, strain, or experience hip pain. In more severe cases, the patient may experience severe stomach pain, sudden groin pain, nausea, or vomiting.
At Hollywood Diagnostics, we are dedicated to providing our patients with the highest quality care and services. Our team of experienced doctors and medical staff will work with you to determine the best course of treatment for your particular condition. To diagnose a femoral hernia, an ultrasound or physical exam may be in order.
When the hernia is small, your doctor may suggest rest, changes to your diet, and/or physical therapy. However, if the hernia is moderate to large in size, surgery may be recommended.
If you are experiencing symptoms of a femoral hernia, please contact us at Hollywood Diagnostics for a comprehensive evaluation. With our help, you can be confident that you will get the answers you need.
