Yes, hernia can cause the lungs to fill with the fluid. Hernia is when the intra-abdominal contents of the upper abdomen protrude into the mediastinum or chest. If the contents are large enough, it can press on adjacent organs, i.e. heart and lungs, and create difficulties breathing or increasing activities.

What causes water to fill around the lungs?

Increased pressure within the vascular system is the usual cause. This is caused usually by three things (one at a time or all combined): too much fluid, too few intravascular particles, too little heart function.All three cause too much pressure within the circulatory system and the fluid within the vessels is then 'pushed out' into the extavascular space. This space is within the lungs or within other tissues in the body. You get wet lungs or swollen extremities.
