Abdominal Hernia (Ventral Hernia)

Abdominal Hernia (Ventral Hernia) - Diagnosis

Your doctor may examine your abdomen and feel for bulges. During the physical exam, he may ask you to cough or bear down, which makes it easier for the ventral hernia to be felt.

Other imaging tests may be required for assessment, such as an abdominal ultrasound, abdominal CT scan, or an abdominal MRI scan.
