is it likely that someone with an umbilical hernia (that's not visible or causing problems) will cause major problems in the future?

Possible: overtly large umbilical hernias are less likely to get trapped with gut and strangulate, while not visible ones may and lead to vague symptoms of nausea/vomit and poorly localized pain. Suggest MD to discuss, assess and determine treatment plan depending on your symptoms and objective findings.
