Infection or hernia: The most likely problem associated with a swollen belly button, if this is the first time you are encountering this at age 37, is either an umbilical hernia (a defect in the wall of your abdomen) or an infection. If it is painful, red, swollen or if you are having nausea, vomiting and are unable to go to the bathroom, you should get checked as soon as possible.
