A 25-year-old female asked:

Are abdominal lymph nodes around belly button palpable, or do they lie too deep in the abdomen to be felt?

Abdominal Anatomy: They are too deep to be palpated in the skin of your abdomen. Lymph nodes would only be detectable on ultrasounds or other ways of xraying (ct scan etc) the body.

My baby11mo. Has redness around her belly button only, it's a week now.. What could this be? Can i put anything on it?

Inflammation: Redness around the belly button is much more common in newborns than at 11 months. Earlier it would certainly be a local infection and potentially quite serious. At this age, a bug bite, with a local reaction is more likely. Some warm most packs would be useful. Then put on a topical antibiotic salve (neosporin) or better still calendula ointment.

Depends: For your height you are underweight. If your weight been like this foe several years, i would not be concerned. It is your abdominal aorta which is pulsating, which is normal. It will be beneficial to get a sonogram of that area to see the size of your aorta.If you are losing weight, I am definitely concerned.
