Welcome to healthcare Magic!
The lump behind the belly button that is umbilicus is most likely a small umbilical hernia or a lipoma.
Both problems are quite common and often do not need treatment unless growing in size or for having cosmetic issues as in case of females.
The swelling/lump is not XXXXXXX but treatment if needed at all is with surgery only.
I hope the advise would be informative and useful for you.
Take Care!
