A groin hernia occurs at a weak point in the abdominal wall musculature in the groin. Intestines or fat can bulge through this weakness causing a lump in the groin or on the inner thigh.
Types of Groin Hernias
Risk Factors for Developing a Groin Hernia
Frequent heavy lifting or strenuous activity that engages the abdominal wall core musculature may put you at risk for the development of a groin hernia. However, most groin hernias occur in patients without significant risk factors.
