Union County General Surgery to offer free hernia screenings
Union County General Surgery plans to offer a free hernia screening on Wednesday, Feb. 26.
Screenings will be available from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at 515 N. Main St., Suite C, in Anna.
Registration is required and is available by calling 855-930-1365.
In announcing plans for the free screenings, Union County General Surgery shared the following information:
If you experience a heavy feeling in your abdomen when you bend, pain when you lift heavy objects, or a lump that enlarges when you strain and disappears when you lie down, it could be a hernia.
Some hernias with few symptoms may just need monitoring by your primary care physician. Those with more serious symptoms may need treatment.
Union County General Surgery can provide the next steps needed for treatment of all types of hernias.
