An Umbilical Hernia: Causes, Symptoms and Treatment

hernia

An umbilical hernia happens when part of the bowel or fatty tissue thrusts through a region near the belly button, assertive through a weak point in the surrounding abdominal wall.

Symptoms of an umbilical hernia

There may be a soft lump/swelling near the umbilicus (navel), extending from 1-5 centimeters in diameter. The lump is generally more visible if the baby yells, laughs, coughs, or strains.

When to see a doctor:
• The lump becomes painful
• The infant/adult vomits (and there is a lump)
• The lump swells up more
• The lump becomes discolored

In adults, too much abdominal compression can cause an umbilical hernia. Possible causes in adults include:
• Obesity
• Numerous pregnancies
• Liquid in the abdominal cavity (ascites)
• Previous abdominal surgery
• Chronic peritoneal dialysis

Treatments for an umbilical hernia

Infants and children – in the most of the cases, the hernia ceases on its own by the age of 12 months. Sometimes, the doctor may be able to push the bulge back into the abdomen (it is important that only the doctor does this).

Surgery may be required if:

• A hernia raises after the child is 1-2 years old

• If the intestines are within the hernial sac, inhibiting or reducing the movement of the intestines
• If a hernia becomes confined
• Adults – surgery is usually suggested, to prevent potential obstacles, particularly if a hernia grows or starts to hurt.
