The most common location for hernia is the abdomen. The abdominal wall, a sheet of tough muscle and tendon that runs down from the ribs to the legs at the groins, acts as the body’s corset. Its function, amongst other things, is to hold in the abdominal contents, principally the intestines.
If a weakness should open up in that wall, then the corset effect is lost and what pushes against it from the inside (the intestines) simply pushes through the opening. The ensuing bulge, which is often quite visible against the skin, is the hernia.
