The doctor will physically check for any protrusion or bulge in infants and adults. Your doctor will try to push your hernial bulge back into the abdominal cavity, and failure in doing so might be due to incarceration or strangulation. The diagnosis process is usually the same for any individual regardless of age and gender, including a physical test. First, your doctor will try to locate the bulge. However, if the bulge is not apparent, your doctor may ask you to conduct – abdominal ultrasound X-rayCT scan and other imaging tests can help with the diagnosis.


There are two types of treatment for umbilical hernia-

Open surgery – Open surgery is a conventional type of surgery where the surgeon makes a big incision to get a full view of the organs and tissues inside your body. This leads to greater blood loss and longer surgery time. The incision is stitched back with sutures. The patient is either under general or local anesthesia while undergoing the surgery.

Laparoscopic surgery – It is a highly advanced method of treatment that involves a laparoscope. The surgeon makes a small incision and inserts the laparoscope through it. The laparoscope is attached with a camera on the other end that provides a clear view of the organs and tissues inside. The surgeon locates the precise region of the hernia and operates it while monitoring the images on the screen.

Umbilical hernia & Pregnancy. What’s the way forward?

Pregnancy is a major cause of umbilical hernia in women. The intra-abdominal pressure due to protruded belly causes massive strain. However, less than 0.1% of women will incur umbilical hernia during pregnancy. Pregnancy can also contribute to the progression of pre-existing hernia, making it more apparent. If your hernia occurs during pregnancy and it becomes symptomatic, you should seek medical treatment immediately. Symptoms may include

  • A swelling or bump
  • Pain or tenderness around the belly
  • Pressure around the belly button l

The doctor will conduct a thorough examination, including a series of imaging tests, to understand the nature of the umbilical hernia. If the condition does not cause major discomfort, the doctor recommends watchful waiting. However, if there is a risk of strangulations or incarcerations, the doctor may recommend surgery during pregnancy. The second trimester is considered the proper time for surgery. Asymptomatic hernias can be repaired following childbirth or during C-section surgery. Laparoscopic surgery allows surgeons to precisely locate and treat umbilical hernia during pregnancy.

The surgeon may also use surgical mesh for extra reinforcement since pregnancy can increase strain on the abdominal walls. However, surgical mesh, as opposed to sutures, can only prevent recurrence of umbilical hernia and does not make the patient immune to umbilical hernia.
