Umbilical Hernia: It is unlikely to be a cyst or appendicitis. appendicitis not only causes pain but fever, loss of appetite, nausea, etc.... it also will worsen in a short time. cysts tend to be short lived and resolve on their own unless very large. I would be concerned for an umbilical hernia which will cause pain that can radiate. worse with straining and better with rest. They are easy to find on exam. ...Read more

Not necessarily.: "mass" is a vague term often used to describe a lump found on physical examination.
