What is Pancreas?

The pancreas is a large gland behind the stomach and close to the duodenum—the first part of the small intestine. The pancreas secretes digestive juices, or enzymes, into the duodenum through a tube called the pancreatic duct. Pancreatic enzymes join with bile—a liquid produced in the liver and stored in the gallbladder—to digest food. The pancreas also releases the hormones insulin and glucagon into the bloodstream. These hormones help the body regulate the glucose it takes from food for energy. Normally, digestive enzymes secreted by the pancreas do not become active until they reach the small intestine. But when the pancreas is inflamed, the enzymes inside it attack and damage the tissues that produce them. Pancreatitis is inflammation of the pancreas. Pancreatitis can be acute or chronic.

Spigelian Hernia or also known sometimes as “Lateral ventral” hernia is an unconventional type of hernia that develops throughout the Spigelian fascia. While most types of hernia grow below the fatty layers of the human body, Spigelian hernia is different. This type of hernia grows in between the abdominal wall and the muscles. As it is deep under the layers of the human body, this type of hernia usually does not show any obvious symptoms and therefore remains undetected for long durations. 

While most of the hernias are situated at the fat layers of the patient’s body and therefore cause swelling that is noticeable, Spigelian hernia, on the other hand, is situated deep inside and therefore does not show any such symptom. This type of hernia is known as “interparietal hernia” and it develops inside the abdominal walls and muscles. This is why there is no swelling or bulges that could be witnessed externally. Also, the size of this kind of hernia is considerably very small and therefore leaves no chances to identify it externally. However, it can be identified if the patient pays careful attention. Spigelian hernia can cause constant abdominal discomfort and this is what will help you identify it.

A patient starts to feel some amount of pain in the place of hernia after a while. This pain is constant and may come and go in intervals. However, it is still a strong symptom to look out for. Initially, it may not hurt in the immediate area of hernia but after a while, the location becomes clearer as the hernia begins to hurt more specifically. These symptoms are usually for hernias that are small in size and are made up of small lumps of soft tissues. Another symptom of Spigelian hernia is that it causes disturbances in the bowel functioning of the person.

Due to the fact that Spigelian hernia has no as such obvious symptoms, it is hard to diagnose this. Therefore, the doctor needs to go through an extensive examination in order to confirm a diagnosis regarding Spigelian hernia. He/she will check the size of the abdomen and will examine it by touching it gently in order to know if there are any lumps or not. Furthermore, a confirmed diagnosis for Spigelian hernia can also be passed after obtaining the CT scan results.
