In brief: Umbilical hernias

Can be of several sizes.
They can either have a piece of fat within it or a piece of small or large bowel.Attimes they can get incarcerated -meaning u can't push em back in-causing symptoms of bowel obstruction.Im not sure if by movement you are referring to the peristaltic activity inside the abdomen.It typically gives the gurgling sounds.Stuff shouldnt be moving around inside the abdomen otherwise.
