This multimedia-based module is part of a series designed for medical students to assist in preparation for clinical examinations in surgery. This module explores how to examine superficial swellings including herniae.

The basic guidelines for surgery are similar to internal medicine. The disease profile, however, may vary. The basic process is:

   1. History
   2. Physical Examination
   3. Integration of information

This module has been internally reviewed by a cross-disciplinary committee within University of Ghana prior to releasing as an Open Educational Resource.
