Umbilical hernia: Umbilical hernias are holes in the abdominal wall through which abdominal contents can protrude, and cause pain. The pain is typically right at the belly button, but could go to the back in some individuals, perhaps due to contraction or spasm of the abdominal wall muscles in the flank in response to the pain. Best to have it checked out by your primary care provider. Hope this helps!

Umbilical hernia: Hernias can cause pain and more commonly when things are intermittently stuck or incarcerated in the defect.
This is a sign that you should have this issue evaluated by a medical professional and consider treatment if it is frequent or changes your ability to do normal daily activities.
