Hernia seems less likely with a normal CT scan. Is a surgical scar near the site causing you to feel scar tissue?

In brief: Probably postsurg

Did you have laparoscopic surgery? If so, a port may have been placed through this region at the time of surgery.
Also, is this along the incision line if you had open surgery? Additionally, a tiny. Umbilical hernia containing fat could be present, which may be difficult to see on ct. Do you have any pain or discomfort?
