Hello, welcome to healthcaremagic. Your daughter seems to be having urachal cyst. The urachus is a structure that connects the bladder to the umbilical cord in the baby during pregnancy. Usually the urachus disappears before birth. If the urachus does not disappear, cysts may form in the navel area, leading to infection. Wish your daughter good health.
