The fascia is a thick layer of tissue that keeps the contents of the abdomen in place. There are certain areas of the abdominal wall which are considered sites of weakness, these are inguinal, femoral and umbilical areas. The groin represents the area where approximately 75% of hernias develop.

Whether due to excess abdominal strain, age, genetics or congenital disorders, this tissue can weaken and intestinal contents may begin to push through. Most commonly, fatty tissue and loops of large intestine may push into, and ultimately become trapped in, the hernia defect.

However, small pits or cavities, known as diverticula, can form along the colon. This leads to a diagnosis of diverticulosis.
