Hernia

What are the symptoms of a paraumbilical hernia?

A Answers (1)

  • Symptoms of paraumbilical hernia include a bulge adjacent to the navel that is more prominent while standing than while lying down. There may be pain and, especially if the bulge does not go down, it should be treated as a medical emergency. Unlike umbilical hernias, paraumbilical hernias occur next to the navel rather than through it, and are more common in adults than children.
