I have a feeling of tightness, fullness like a knot just below belly button?

I have a feeling of tightness, fullness like a knot just below belly button?

Some possibilities..: Feeling a knot of tightness near the belly button... Probably not in the skin, so the next layer is the muscle... Maybe a muscle strain from sit-ups or other exercises. Not likely to be a hernia there unless there is a bulge. Under the muscle layer are the intestines... Maybe some intestine contraction or spasm, due to no particular reason or to constipation. A doctor's visit can sort things out.

Umbilical henia: You could have a hernia which can pop out then go back in if you press it. Please go to your doc for full exam. If you do have hernia evantually you will need surgery as hernia always get bigger but never get smaller.

I run regularly, but when running today I felt a twisting/knot - like pain right below my belly button to the right. It's tender to touch.

Few possibilities: My guess is that it is an abdominal wall muscle strain, and it will resolve within a few days. Perhaps it will resolve after your next bowel movement. Some more serious internal disorders would be appendicitis, diverticulitis, twisting or volvulus of the intestine. If the pain is associated with fever, vomiting, diarrhea, very severe colicky pain, then obviously check with your doctor.

Why is there a hard knot near the belly button after bowel obstruction surgery?

Why is there a hard knot near the belly button after bowel obstruction surgery?

Depends: What type of surgery did you have; open or laparoscopic? Is there a healing incision at the site? I assuming the firmness that you feel is at the site of a healing scar. It will resolve over a few months. See your surgeon for an exam to be sure that you are healing properly.

Post Op Concerns: The belly button or (umbilicus) is where the camera port was placed for your sons surgery. Once this port is removed some tenderness and swelling can occur. Redness, warmth, fever, pus, nausea are all reasons to call your sons surgeon right away. If the swelling doesn't go down, make sure the surgeon examines it at the follow up appointment. It could be a fluid collection, (seroma), or hernia.

Wound still healing: Laparoscopic cholecystectomy (gallbladder removal via scope) requires several incisions/holes, one of which is through the belly-button (see picture). Scarring is something you only get to see on the outside, but occurs inside as well. The healing may not be complete and internal organ/intestine rubbing on it on/off which may cause some discomfort. As long as it getting better, u r ok. Good luck.

Rash: If you scratch it and it welts up then it could very well be something called a mastocytoma. If you have only seen one dermatologist then I would make an appt with a new one for a new and different opinion.

See a doc today: "a huge knot above the belly button" along with symptoms of nausea and sleeplessness is concerning for a hernia that cannot be pushed back into place have it looked at by your doctor now; if you can't, I would consider visiting an urgent care center or ed to have it evaluated before your symptoms get worse.

I am an endometreosis patient. Is it normal for me to feel knots below my belly button when I'm on my menstrual cycle? The knots are painful to touch

May be implants: If you have had surgery, especially laparoscopic surgery, the painful knots at your belly button when you are on your period may be implants of endometriosis (endometriomas) and are not normal. Talk to your GYN about this. They may need to be removed. Hope this helps.
