It could be an Umbilical Hernia. Get examined by a Surgeon.
This could be a Umbilical hernia.
Do not worry, it can be treated easily.
I suggest you get yourself examined by a Surgeon or your GP and diagnosis can be made only by examination.
If it is confirmed then you should undergo a minor surgery in which they will put the contents of the hernia back into the abdomen and repair the defect in the fascia. Therefore it would be good for you to see a Surgeon.
It is not an emergency but see your Surgeon when you can get an early appointment. Also, avoid straining your abdominal muscles till you can see the Surgeon.
Take care and do let me know if there are any queries on this issue.
