Protruding navel

This is a treatment for a condition that occurs particularly in individuals with a protruding navel called umbilical hernia. There is a hole in the film (peritoneum) wrapping the stomach. Because of this, when pressure is applied to the stomach, the intestines swell up through this hole, and the navel swells up. Most cases are seen in newborn babies, but sometimes the condition is also seen among adults. In babies the condition often heals by itself, but in adults an operation is necessary.
