How Much Does Inguinal Hernia Surgery Cost?

An inguinal hernia, also known as a groin hernia, will occur when the tissue pushes through a weak spot inside of your groin muscle.  This, in turn, causes a bulge in the groin or labia, causing either a burning-like sensation or no pain at all.  About 70 percent of hernias that occur will be in the groin.

If you were to experience a hernia, they do not go away on its own, and only surgery will be able to repair it.  While some can delay the surgery, the hernia will get bigger as the muscle wall of the belly gets weaker and more tissue will bulge through.  Most doctors, according to Cigna, will recommend this surgery because it can prevent serious problems in the future.
