Q7. What is an epigastric hernia? : A guide to Hernias

A7. An epigastric hernia appears similar to an umbilical hernia but with one difference " it forms in an area of the abdomen between the chest and the navel known as the ‘epigastrium’.

This is a very small type of hernia which means that only the lining of the abdominal wall pokes through but in some cases part of an internal organ will protrude.
