Is an umbilical hernia a serious cause of concern?
Don't worry, it can wait till you go back home and see your doctor.
Hi and thank you for asking!
I read your query and understood your concerns.
After reviewing your hernia my opinion is that for the moment you shouldn't worry about that. It can wait till you go back home and see your doctor.
However if the hernia becomes blue or changes color and/or becomes very painful you should go immediately to the nearest hospital (emergency room) to exclude any incarcerated hernia which is an emergency.
Hope this was of help!
Wish you health!
Yes. there is no complication...
Yes from the picture it looks fine without complications.
So you can wait and consult the surgeon at your city.
All the best.
