Umbilical hernia: In adults, if there is too much pressure on the abdominal wall, fatty tissue or a part of the bowel can poke through a weak part of the abdominal muscle, resulting in an umbilical hernia. Doing sit ups could certainly contribute to its development in someone with anatomical risks such as a weak area in the abdominal wall. Obesity, persistent cough, or heavy lifting can increase the risk. ...Read more

Doubtful.: While it is often best to fix this problem before it causes trouble, it is highly unlikely to kill you.

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:
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 more

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.

Bad Option: The purpose of a hernia belt is to prevent intestine from getting incarcerated ("stuck") within the hernia. The umbilicus is a very difficult if not impossible area to support in this manner; if anywhere, belts are better for inguinal (groin) hernias. Not all umbilical hernias require surgery; but, if your symptoms are severe enough to consider a belt, you may want to see a hernia surgeon. ...Read more
Surgery?: The only way to "fix" an umbilical hernia, like all hernias, is through surgery. However, the question is whether it needs to be fixed or is just cosmetic. Hernias can cause problems when a part of the bowel gets caught in it and can get "strangled" or have the blood supply compromised, whether this is likely to happen depends on lots of factors. See your doctor to discuss your hernia to decide. ...Read more
