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.

What is a hiatus hernia

Google it.
A hiatus hernia or hiatal hernia is a type of hernia in which the upper part of the stomach protrudes into the chest cavity through the esophageal hiatus in the thoracic diaphragm due to a tear or weakness in the diaphragm.
The most common cause is obesity. The diagnosis is often by endoscopy or medical imaging.

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 )

Good day my name is michael ,my wife had a problem with her belly button it keeps swelling & when the pain starts ,she cant even bent.what can i get her for pain/any advice please?

if it is an abdominal hernia and she is in pain her bowel might be being pinched . If her bowel is pinched it is an urgent life threatening condition ! Seek medical assistance

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.
