Hiatal hernias are common, which are normally caused by injuries to the stomach/chest area, intense pressure on surrounding muscles, or age-related changes to the diaphragm. Small hiatal hernias often do not cause symptoms, but larger ones can cause major discomfort. Men and women 50 years or older and those who are obese are at a higher risk for developing hiatal hernias.
