Question: There's this spot that's is abit from the belly button on the left side. Hurts when I press down. Is it a muscle strain or something else. It feels like a bruise when I press on it and more prominent when I try to sit up while lying down. I did do sit ups a month back and some pushup. Other then this I am just gassy so I doubt it's appendicitis?

Brief Answer:
As detailed below.

Detailed Answer:
Hi.
Thanks for your query.
To recapitulate: Female/24 - spot a bit away from belly button on the left side - tender - feels like a bruise on pressing on it - more prominent when try to sit up - did sit ups and push ups a month back - just gassy to add on - wants to know whether appendicitis/ strain/ something else.

As per the history you have provided, this looks more of a para-umbilical hernia.
Other possible causes can be a lipoma, desmoid tumor, herniation of rectus muscle.

Please give some feedback:
Does the swelling reduce completely if you rest in lying down position? And popping on coughing or straining by any means?
Can you please post a photograph with marker where the spot is?

Sometimes there is a popping feeling at night when I suck and release my stomach but seemed to have gas after that. It only hurts when I press on it other wise it doesn't hurts

I am 56 years of age and had an inguinal hernia repair in December of 2009 since then I find it difficult to maintain and erection when making love and also, my ejaculate is very thin and watery. Is this a sign of infertility and also, from the hernia operation?

My left side is very painful, it's under my ribs and into my back, it hurts to sit and drive my car or lie down, my dr did a CT scan and it came back okay, no kidney stones, I was hurting more internally but now the pain is hurting on the outside and very painful to touch or even bump up against something, I had a UTI but that is now cleared up. My Dr is not sure what it could be, I would like to see a specialist to see if they can help but I'm not sure what type to go to? Pain Managment, GI? I've had some heartburn along with this and at times feel nauseus, this is very painful and I'm unsure what to do at this point, any advice would be greatly appreciated. I wasn't sure if it could be my colon, or a hyatel hernia, possible even gallbladder, the urgency care did an xray of my lungs and didn't see any fractured ribs, and the only thing they found on the CT scan was that I had an umbilical hernia that I need to get taken of but that is not where my pain is located.

How long after an umbilical hernia tear does the bulge appear? I just noticed this bump yesterday and today it is a bit more sore. Could it be like a cut that you have then only after you notice it starts to hurt? I am pretty sure I got the hernia from abs crunches in the gym last week.
