Belly button bulging?

Hernia. In my experience the most commong cause is a hernia of the umbillicus or belly button. This can occur even in young women, often after pregnancy, after surgery made through the umbillicus such as laparoscopy and sometimes for no obvious reason at all. Best to see a doctor and let them examine you and make a recommendation as to what it is and how best to treat.

See a doctor ASAP. This sounds quite serious and there should be no delay in seeking medical attention. There is no way to tell whether this is coming from within the abdominal cavity or the pain is due to skin or facial plane infection, but in any event this needs immediate evaluation and care.

YES,umbilical hernia. Yes! umbilical hernias are common (there is a natural defect from birth-from the umbilical cord). When you push on the hernia-you are 'reducing it'. When a hernia becomes painful they should be repaired (usually with a gortex patch). Most important: an 'incarcerated hernia' where the hernia remains bulged out with severe pain (due to lack of blood flow to an area or bowel intestine)--emergency! Read more...

3 weeks ago, got up from couch & felt tear below belly button. No hernia bulge. Had ultrasound, clear. Stomach pressure when bending. What next?

Should subside. While the sensation of a tear often means that you have torn part of a tendon that connects a muscle to its insertion, it is not likely to require treatment and, generally, the pressure will gradually go away. Unless symptoms increase or persist to a disturbing degree, there is no "next". If those problem do occur, see your physiian. Read more...
