My son has a possible burst cyst in his upper outer part of his belly button... Is emergency attention necessary? Or can he see family doctor on monday?
It : It is not clear from your question exactly what is going on with your son. The area you describe is an unusual place for a "cyst." most cysts are underneath the skin and the most common is a sebaceous cyst.

What is the best way to treat a groinal hernia? My husband has this right now. He did have an umbilical hernia that was repaired.
Inguinal hernia: There is no best repair for inguinal hernia. I personally recommend laparoscopic repairs for inguinal hernias due to reduced pain and quick recovery.
