Reply To: Femoral Hernia – new to all this
Femoral hernias are more commonly seen among women. They likely have a genetic predisposition. Your level of activity does not positively or negatively protect against these, as there is very little muscle in the area. It’s all bone and ligament.
Femoral hernias are usually small and rarely present as a bulge. If you see a bulge then most likely it’s an inguinal hernia. Physical exam by your doctor will help.
