Lump in belly button. Slight abdominal pain around the area. Umbilical hernia? I have doctors appointment in about 24 hours. Safe to wait until then?

In brief: Possible and Yes

It is possible that this is an umbilical hernia.
If you can easily reduce it, meaning easily push it back in, then you can safely wait until you see your doctor tomorrow. If the pain worsens, or becomes constant, that may represent an estrangulated hernia, which is not reducible, and would require more immediate attention.
