Why Repair a Hernia?

The major reason is symptoms.  Hernias often cause significant pain.  Exercise and long periods of standing can be difficult.  Athletes often have difficulty performing at 100% and are no longer competitive. Intercourse can be painful.  Also, the bulge can increase in size to a point that it is easy visible through clothes and thus becomes an embarrassment. 

The most serious problem with a hernia occurs if the intestines get stuck (incarcerated) in the hernia.  Luckily, this is rare. But when it does occur incarcerations require an emergency operation.  Indirect inguinal hernias and femoral hernias have a much higher risk of incarceration than direct inguinal hernias.
