Hi, The most common symptom of umbilical hernias is pain at the umbilicus (44% of cases). Other complaints include pressure (20%) and nausea and vomiting (9%).
Indications for operative repair include pain, incarceration, strangulation, defect larger than 1 cm, skin ulceration, and/or hernia rupture.
Kindly consult surgeon for follow-up...
