I have mild pain in my belly button and a slight discomfort

This answer was rated:

I have mild pain in my belly button and a slight discomfort when I urinate. It began this morning. The pain has been off and on throughout the day, but I was able to go about my routine. Plus when I finish urinating I still feel as if I have to go.

Can the two be related?
