Do belly button hernias need to be removed?

Maybe

Hernia
An umbilical hernia can be surgically repaired or observed. If it is causing discomfort or enlarging, then it can be repaired. If it is stable, small, and causing no symptoms or problems then it can be observed. If it is in a young child, then it can be observed as some may resolve on their own.

Dr. Nicole Basa answered:

can you walk and jog with a belly button hernia.

You can

Running
Yes you can walk and jog unless it is uncomfortable. If you are having symptoms or the hernia is large you will need to have it surgically repaired. You should absolutely not do any heavy lifting greater than 10 lbs. nor any abdominal exercises before and for 6 weeks after repair.

Only if no pain

Abdomen-central-belly_button
A lot depends on how big your hernia is, but if it is not causing any pain, nausea, vomiting, or distention, it is probably ok. Also, if there is any discoloration of skin over the hernia, it is time for surgical repair.

Dr. Hugh Walsh answered:

Do small belly button hernias need to be removed?

No

Intestine
Small umbilical hernias usually don't cause much trouble, As they enlarge there is more likelihood bowel or omentum will become trapped in the hernia. Usually they can be repaired easily as an outpatient, often with a small piece of mesh placed behind the hole just outside the lining of the abdominal cavityie, the peritoneum

What does a hernia in the belly button look like?

A bulge

Abdomen
Umbilical hernias present as a protrusion in the belly button, with or without pain. If you have an "outie" try gently pushing on it. If it disappears, you have an umbilical hernia.

Dr. ROBERT Uyeda answered:

Is it possible to get a hernia from a belly button?

Hernia is

Belly_button
defect, or hole, in the fascia, or the covering, of the abdominal wall. At the belly button, or umbilicus, there is a potential weakness where the fetus connects to placenta in the uterus.. When the area does not close completely at birth or potential weak area breaks down for any reason, you can get an umbilical hernia.
