Abdominal wall hernias and groin hernias can cause back pain. When they are fixed, the back pain can go away if it was due to the hernia.
A Spigelian hernia is a very specific type of hernia. Most general surgeons are knowledgeable about what it is, though they may not readily diagnose it as it is a rare type of hernia. At Kaiser in San Diego, seek consultation with Dr Jaclyn Parker. She is a general surgeon with excellent laparoscopic and hernia experience that trained with us prior to moving to San Diego.
Films, including MRIs, can be misread, especially for hernias. It is important to see all the images and in high definition in order correctly identify the findings you mention.
