What is an bubonocele? The term «hernia» itself indicates the exit of an internal organ (it means an internal organ in a body cavity), or part thereof, from a natural cavity that contains it. In particular, the term " bubonocele " refers to a protrusion of the intestine from a hernial defect located in the inguinal area.
In severe cases, an bubonocele is well visualized as a large localized tumor at the level of the inguinal region. At first, it may not be visible, even if there are painful sensations.
Who suffers from bubonocele?
Bubonocele is one of the most common diseases, and it is mainly men who suffer from it (7 times more often than women). This state of affairs is directly related to the anatomical features of the inguinal canal. In men, it is more vulnerable than in women. In addition, according to statistics, bubonocele, in most cases, occurs on the right side of the body.
Symptoms of bubonocele
The symptoms are as follows:
- feeling of heaviness in the abdomen;
- pain during exertion or physical exertion;
- bloating appears in the inguinal region, which disappears in the supine position;
- inconvenience when walking.
Sometimes pain with bubonocele can be unbearable, the degree of pain increases if the hernia compresses an area rich in nerve endings.
The most serious complication a hernia can give is pinching (it occurs in 4% of cases).
The patient must understand that bubonecele cannot regress spontaneously.
Conservative treatment is useful when surgery is contraindicated. In this case, wearing a special bandage is recommended. Surgical intervention is recommended when the condition of the patient with a hernia is at risk of deterioration.
Bubonecele in men, surgery is performed on an outpatient basis, and after a few days, usually, the patient can resume his normal activity. Bubonecele operation is a routine operation, as it is the most commonly performed surgical intervention in the world. In most cases, the use of a small area of mesh biocompatible material is used, the task of which is to strengthen the abdominal wall. The treatment of bubonecele is successfully carried out by surgeons of the Bogoliuby Medical Center.
Prevention of bubonocele involves maintaining good muscle tone, especially abdominal muscles.
