Know In General, 2 Causes of Hernia (Intestine Descending)
Hernia (Decreased Intestines) or Descending Berok (Javanese term) is a protrusion of the contents of a cavity, where the cavity has a defect or weakness. The cavity in question is the abdominal cavity, if one side of the abdomen is affected by a defect or weakness, a bulge will appear in the groin. This bulge is known as a hernia. So, a hernia is actually not only a lump in the groin, but can be anywhere on the human body, it's just that in general what is often found in the community is the descending intestine with a lump in the groin.

When at birth the slit should close, but because the slit is not completely closed, a hernia occurs in the newborn. This is because the patient has a history of chronic cough.
