Are there different types of hernias?
Yes, hernias can be divided into different types depending on their location, the cause of the hernia, and/or the structures within the hernia. The most common type of hernia is an inguinal hernia, which occurs in the groin area. Some of the other common types of hernias include femoral, umbilical, epigastric and incisional hernias.
