what causes pain around your navel?

Could be infection: Tha pain could be coming from inside the navel itself, and there could be an infection within the c losed skin space of the navel, also called the umbilicus. The pain could also be coming from the muscle wall, or from inside your abdomen, and could be caused by intestinal, pancreatic or liver disease. If it persists, go to your doctor for a checkup.
