What is Umbilical Hernia?

Description of the disease

Umbilical hernia is a condition in which the contents of the abdominal cavity protrude through a weak spot or opening in the abdominal wall muscles around the navel. It is particularly common in newborns, but can also occur in adults.


  • Congenital
  • Acquired


  • Bulging near the navel
  • Pain around the navel
  • Regurgitation


Umbilical hernia most often occurs due to weakness in the abdominal wall muscles, which can be congenital or acquired.


The diagnosis of umbilical hernia is usually made based on a physical examination by a doctor. In some cases, an ultrasound examination may be required.


In most cases, umbilical hernia requires surgical intervention. In children, hernias often resolve on their own within the first few years of life. In adults, safe hernia removal is usually done using laparoscopic surgery.


To prevent umbilical hernia, it is recommended to strengthen the abdominal muscles, especially in women during pregnancy.


For consultation and treatment of umbilical hernia, it is advisable to consult a surgeon.
