How long have you had it and has it gotten larger in size?

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
TWO WEEKS OR SO, YES IT HAS GOTTEN MUCH LARGER
Doctor: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 7 months ago

Does it flatten out more when you lay down and more noticeable when you stand up or when you bear down?

Most likely what you have is an umbilical hernia. These aren't dangerous but if it is troublesome then you could see a general surgeon who can reduce the hernia by surgery. If you don't do anything forward it all then it will persist and possibly gets slightly larger.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
