Yes; one of the symptoms of (umbilical) hernia is a swollen belly button. However, this symptom may be associated with other conditions so be sure to ask your doctor for a correct diagnosis.

Belly button swelling problem?


get it checked by a doctor - If button is sticking out it may be an abdominal hernia.
If it is - part of the bowel can get pinched in the hernia tear and if this occurs you need to be rushed to emergency in a hospital !

How is it fixed if it is this.
By a painful operation to sew a mesh in between the muscle and skin layers of your belly ! (only painful post operation for about 2 weeks - no heavy lifting )

I am speaking from my own experience from having a belly button that was sticking out (Umbilical hernia) that I was advised to get an operation to fix the hernia and that there was a risk of having my bowel getting pinched which is life threatening !
Had a hernia operation to fix it. Was also there when I was a baby but it sealed up but came back later in life .

Advise getting an ambulance if the pain is intense.

I have a hiatus hernia. Why are symptons are greatly increased directly after a cigrette. Vice-like pain around chest with tightness inside the female chest


Because the hiatus hernia is close to your heart and lungs. you are sucking in large amounts of tobacco contaminated air. You lungs are inflamed and swollen. Give up smoking, it is a k1ller and killed two of my wives. I know it isn't easy, but in your case, you need to. If you are overweight, you need to address that too.

Look the website link for what your hernia looks like and how it affects your chest. You heart is against that bulge in the image.

What is a 1.5 cm hernia filled with omental tissue?


A hernia is a hole, or split in the muscle tissue that keeps your insides in. When you have a hernia, The omentum inside can pop through the muscle and start pushing on the underside of your skin. You would be able to feel a bulge on your abdomen, under your skin, where there isn't supposed to be one. "Omentum" is Latin for "curtin". The omental tissue is a sort of curtain around your abdominal organs inside your abdomen, including your intestines.

Omentum Wikipedia the free encyclopedia

If you have a hernia, the pressure inside your abdomen will push the omental tissue through the hernia first. The omental tissue is made of Peritonium

Peritoneum Wikipedia the free encyclopedia.

If the hernia is small. then maybe only the omental tissue will pop through. If the hernia grows, then part of the intestine can pop through as well, causing a bowel obstruction that is a bit like folding a garden hose and stopping the water. If this happens, it can lead to death of part of the intestine and even death of the patient if not treated quickly.

How long would it take to recover after surgery for inguinal hernia? My dad has been scheduled to undergo repair surgery for inguinal hernia. While the doctors have given us their opinion on how long...


Surgical procedures to repair Hernia these days could be completed in less than an hour or two in cases of inguinal hernia. Just as with any surgical procedure, the body needs time to heal after a hernia surgery. In most cases, patients are allowed to leave the hospital on the same day as the procedure unless there are any unexpected complications. Recovery process is gradual. If your work does not involve much physical exertions, you could be back at work in 10 days or less. But make sure you do it in consultation with your doctor. Gentle exercises are advised as part of the recovery process. But you'd have to be patient until your body fully recovers from the surgery before you decide to start working out or unduly exerting yourself.
