Weak point in navel
You have a defect at the navel where your umbilical cord was attached.
This defect normally closes by the age of 2. However, in some patients this defect can enlarge over time. Usually the defect is manifested by a bulge at the navel. Sometimes, the abdominal contents in the hernia
can become trapped at the muscle (incarcerated hernia) and cause pain that will require repair.
