Brief Answer: Considerations Detailed Answer: Hello & thank you for submitting your question. This line is a normal occurrence, caused by lines of closure of the abdomen/pelvis structures during development when you were a fetus. This line can be somewhat prominent in darker skinned individuals. It can also become more pronounced during pregnancy. Thank you for submitting your question & I hope this provided some insight. Take Care, Dr G
