Possibly could be: an omphalomesenteric duct cyst which is a fetal remnant of the maternal-fetal circulatory system. Benign, but uncomfortable. I would suggest a surgical consultation to verify.

If ...Body hurts,..: If a part of the Body hurts, it means it is Not Happy. It needs attention. Because of the numerous possibilities of what can go wrong with the Organs & Structures around the Umbilicus ( Stomach/Small & Large Intestine...) it is best to see One's PCP with the mindset that a Gastrointestinal Specialist or General Surgeon might be needed. The sooner the better.
