Abdominal ultrasound shows fluid filled sac below navel. Have burning sensation. What could this be?

After receiving an abdominal ultra sound today to rule out a hernia , I was told that the Radiologist could see a fluid filled sac just under the naval and no hernia. It occasionally has a burning sensation and is painful the palpate.I first noticed it 10 days ago. I am a 52 yr old female with no other related history except I am factor 5 leiden positive heterozogus. I work out with weight lifting and spinning 4 times per week and work with childern as a therapist. I have 3 teenagers and my last was delivered by C-section 13 years ago. What could this be and what would cause this?

General Surgeon 's  Response

Thank you for the query.

If you have any discharges from this area, most probable reason of it is urachus. This is a natural connection between the urinary bladder which should get occluded after birth. But sometimes it does not causing urine discharges from the belly button, inflammations. It can also give more frequent urinary tract infections. The best treatment for it is to remove it. You should visit general surgeon for consult.

If this is not urachus, I suggest you to have abdominal CT which will be more accurate and should tell where does this cyst comes from.

Hope this will help.
