Painful hernia: A hernia that becomes 'trapped' or 'incarcerated' can become painful and swollen. It sounds like your umbilical hernia has recently changed from asymptomatic to symptomatic. This means it could be 'trapped' and you should see a doc now to get some treatment. The problem is, an infection can result and the hernia can 'burst' - so please go now to an ER and get some help. ...Read more

L flank swollen, esp at level of navel.Nofvr.(same thing happened a mnth ago also, but went on tmp sm for an oral surgery, and felt better until 2day) ?
Unsure: Swelling of the flank can be looseness of the muscles, inflammation of the muscles, distention of the left colon (large intestine) with stool and gas (most likely scenario). Or a tumor (which is unlikely to go away!). Hernias are rare in the flank. I would suspect a buildup of gas and stool; you may benefit from a fiber supplement like benefiber or a laxative like miralax (polyethylene glycol). Good luck! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My husband navel is swollen and sensitive to the touch x2 days. No discharge or pain around the area. Could this be an umbilical hernia?
Yes: A hernia here is basically a hole in the adominal wall through which intra-abdominal fat or intestines can protrude. If the intra-abdominal contents get stuck, they can swell and cause a painful lump under the skin. Try to push it back in the abdomen. If you can't, seek medical attention asap.
