Can a vasectomy cause a hernia?

There is no evidence that a vasectomy can cause a hernia.

The vasectomy incision does not involve opening the fascia layer in the abdominal wall. Only if the fascial layer was opened can a surgery potentially cause a hernia.

Hernias are a common problem and can temporally occur at the same time that a vasectomy was done, but unrelated to the vasectomy procedure.
