Adults and children can both experience having a hernia (or hiatal hernia). It is simply when part of the stomach pushes up into the diaphragm. It's quite common actually. My own family has dealt with this a lot.
Contrary to popular belief, only 10% of hernias occur as a result of injury, or history of an injury, such as a sudden strain producing pain and a swelling in the groin. More commonly, discomfort in the groin draws attention to the associated groin swelling.
Occasionally, this swelling causes no symptoms; for example, when showering. This can cause concern that the swelling is due to cancer. (However, swellings due to cancer do not normally disappear when you are lying down!)

WHAT YOU NEED TO AVOID
Caffeine and chocolate is necessary for a while. It will further
aggravate this condition. Eating smaller meals, slowly and chewing well
is beneficial. Lighter meals that are more easily digestible help a lot
They are more obvious when standing, as the effect of gravity encourages abdominal contents to fall into the hernia sac.
HOW DO I KNOW IF I HAVE ONE?
You can detect if you have one by lying on your back. Using your fingers feel around, pushing gently in the upper stomach area. You may feel one (or more) small (or larger) balls, even a pulsating feeling beneath your fingers. Pushing too hard can feel painful.
(You could also do a quick Simple Health Test to find out now.)
What I generally do is simply lie in this position (on my back) and whatever I have handy, my hands or even the TV remote, I will take a deep breath, then push down on that ball while slowly exhaling. Allowing it to pulsate, moving it towards my feet, away from my heart. This offers immediate relief for me. (The idea is to 'get rid of that ball' or balls, they will eventually collapse.)
I will do this many times until I start to feel better (or until the area becomes too sore to continue.) This mechanical type release of a stubborn hernia can be done several times whenever needed. It's an incredibly effective technique taught to me by a chiropractor.
