    The most common hernia in men is an inguinal hernia. Men have two weak spots in the lower abdomen, one on each side. The weak spots are called the inguinal ring. Sometimes a part of the intestine can poke through the ring and cause a bulge in the lower abdomen. It can get worse during physical activity or straining such as during heavy lifting, coughing, or when doing #2 in the bathroom. Hernias can become painful and worsen over time. The greatest danger is a large portion of the intestine bulging out or constriction of intestine causing restricted blood flow. If constricted the intestine tissue will die causing serious problems. Surgery to repair the hernia is required if large enough. Hernia surgery is very common.
