A Femoral Hernia occurs less commonly than an inguinal hernia. However, a patient with a Femoral Hernia tends to have pain or intestinal obstruction much more commonly than an inguinal hernia.
A Femoral Hernia manifests as a lump in the groin region or at the upper inner thigh. The lump is much more likely to be painful and tender compared to an inguinal hernia.
A Femoral Hernia is repaired in a similar fashion to that of an inguinal hernia. A mesh is laid down to reduce the risk of recurrence.
