Where can hernias occur?

Hernias can occur just about anywhere in the body, but occur most commonly in the back (herniated disc), abdomen (hiatal), belly button (umbilical), and groin (inguinal). A hernia is a condition in which a bit of tissue protrudes out of its normal area and into another area. An example is inguinal hernia, where a portion of the intestines or bowel can push into the inguinal canal in the groin.
