Our expert says:
Please be so kind as to be more spesific about the anatomical position of the hernia, i.e. the abdomen, groin etc. A hernia is benign and can not cause cancer. A hernia can be dangerous if there is a large defect, for instance of the abdominal wall, where the gut intrudes into the hernia space. The gut can become "entangled" in the hernia and cause the blood flow to the particular part of the gut to be impaired, in turn causing necrosis (death of the tissue).
