Huge ridge on belly while doing push ups. What kind of hernia is this?

When doing push-ups there is a huge ridge on by belly; it is about 10 inches in length and perhaps sticks out two inches. What kind of hernia is this? Is there danger? In addition, I had inguinal hernia surgery repair about 10 weeks ago. (repaired with mesh) Things have been great. Recently, less than a week ago, it looks like my somewhat fat belly is not only fatter, but has dropped lower in the front...over my belt. In addition there is a small indention a couple of inches away from the scarred incision, as well as small ridges and a small bump leading away from the scar. There is no real pain. The doc said I also had a belly-button hernia, but was not in need of immediate repair. Pleas advise... Don Henry YYYY@YYYY

As per your query,you are having umbilical hernia.
There are no medicines for any hernia.
You have to get operated.
Sometimes ,intestines or omental fat may get into the sac and get obstructed.
To avoid complications,get it operated as soon as possible.
