In brief: Could be

Although umbilical hernia is a possibility it should not be painful.
If indeed painful a more prompt referral to an emergency room is warranted to ensure this is not a life threatening condition.

In brief: Could be a hernia

That is the most likely explanation.
If you have liver disease it may be related to that. I would suggest seeing your doctor to be fully evaluated, and if needed a referral to a surgeon can be placed. If it suddenly becomes much more painful, red, or you have fevers/nausea/vomiting then go to the ER immediately. Good luck.
