How do you treat or reverse a small umbilical hernia where no protrusion has occurred? A doctor i went to said no surgeon would work on it yet.
Depends: This depends on whether or not you need or want to have it fixed. Keep in mind, the type of hernia you have described is very low risk to observe, especially if it is not causing symptoms. If it is causing symptoms, it may be better to fix it. See a general surgeon for a consultation to find out more, but make sure you identify your goals of treatment such as prevention or symptom relief. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I'm 29. have just had a ct. indicated I have a small umbilical hernia containing fat. Still having pain after two weeks. Should I talk to a surgeon?
Had a small umbilical hernia repair (no mesh) done a month ago. The lump above my belly button is still kind of squishy, like it was pre-surgery.
Found out today that I have a umbilical hernia was told it was a small tear but yet i was told no surgery for it but why it can get worse right help!
Doubtful.: While it is often best to fix this problem before it causes trouble, it is highly unlikely to kill you. The most concerning danger is the intestine cutting off it's blood supply when poking through the hernia. That's an emergency. So, if it starts getting bigger, or you feel uncomfortable pressure, and most definitely if it becomes painful, you should be examined right away, immediately. ...Read more

What is a small fat containing umbilical hernia, I have been diagnosed with one, you can't see it, my belly button is still poked in!
Usually not serious: Hi james, since the hernia is small and contains only fat (from within the abdomen), it is unlikely that it will lead to incarceration or strangulation of intestines, which is the worst complication of hernias. The belly button is still in the same spot. The fat in the small hernia sac is right next to the belly button (umbilicus). If the hernia gets larger or causes pain, it should be fixed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What is a small fat containing umbilical hernia? That was on my CT scan, is it dangerous? My gyn doesn't seem to know whatbit is so i'm confused..
Common problem: Many have an umbilical hernia. If the defect is big enough, often the intestinal covering called the omentum, which is fat, will slip into this defect. If it is large enough it won't cause a problem, which sounds like your case. If the blood supply gets cut off because it's tight, then it can cause pretty significant pain. If you're worried have a general surgeon check it out. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
