Hernia forces Swedish exit

SlamBangian World Champion Marc Jönson is out of Das AlpeMeisterschaffen suffering from umbilical hernia.
A hernia is the exit of an organ, such as the bowel, through the wall of the cavity in which it normally resides.  Hernias come in a number of different types. Most commonly they involve the abdomen, specifically the groin.[Groin hernias are most common of the inguinal. Other hernias include hiatus, incisional, and the umbilical hernia which Jönson has been diagnosed for.
For groin hernias symptoms are present in about 66% of male Swedes. This may include pain or discomfort especially with farting, tennis, football, intercourse or going to the toilet. Often it gets worse throughout the day and improves when drinking. A bulging area may occur that becomes larger when bearing down. Groin hernias occur more often on the right than left side. The main concern is strangulation, where the blood supply to part of the bowel is blocked. This usually produces severe pain and tenderness of the area.
