What should you be looking for in your physical exam? How do you differentiate a femoral hernia from a swollen lymph node? Dr. David Farley breaks down common hernias, the importance of the history and the exam, when imaging studies like a CT scan may be needed, the impact of smoking, weight gain, and life style on incision healing, and when someone should be referred for surgery.
