Hernia is an opening formed by the lining of the abdominal cavity. Abdominal wall hernia occurs when the contents of the intestine bulges out of the abdominal wall. Hernias are developed at birth (congenital) or may appear later (acquired).

Breast & Thyroid Cancer
A woman’s breasts are made of specialised tissues supplied by blood vessels, lymph nodes and nerves. Breast cancer is the uncontrolled growth of cells in the breast. This mass of abnormal tissue is called a tumour.
Colon cancer is the growth of rapidly dividing cells in the large intestine. It is also referred to as colorectal cancer. Cancer of the colon develops from polyps, the small and non-cancerous growths of tissues.
Gastrointestinal cancer affects the organs in the digestive system, including the oesophagus, stomach, pancreas, gallbladder, liver, small and large intestine, anus and rectum.
The oesophagus is a muscular passage which carries food from the mouth to the stomach. The lower oesophagal sphincter (LES) is a circular band of muscles at the lower end of the oesophagus that acts as a barrier between the oesophagus and the stomach.
