    We have always come across people complaining about the pain in the abdomen due to a hernia, mostly from people who are aged. When we cross that boundary of youthfulness to middle age, then it is time to worry about a hernia. As age catches up the process of building up and breaking down of muscles and tissues go out of balance. As a result of this imbalance, the muscles or tissues weaken causing weak spots in the area. A hernia occurs when organs push through an opening in the muscle or tissue that holds its place.
