Hi there,

This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.

I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

This is likely a protrusion of the intestine through the defect in the belly button wall.

THis is also known as umbilical hernia.

Can be repaired by a surgeon easily.
