Found something in the navel. What can it be?

Hello, I am a 55 yo male in pretty good health overall. 2 days ago, while in the shower, I felt something inside my navel. With very little effort I was able to remove it...I have been an E.M.T/ 2 years of nursing education and am now a Licensed Massage my whole life I have never seen anything like it. I have photos I would like, no need you to see so that you can tell me what it is. Can I post or send photos here? if so, please inform me how. signed loosing sleep over this I apologize, I thought this forum was without charge and I am truly unable to pay anything at this moment. sorry to waste your time

Hi there ~

Without knowing what the material is that was removed from your umbilicus or having it analyzed in a pathological laboratory it is difficult to tell what the substance that was removed was. I hope you take the specimen to a pathologist and have it analysed.

Take care and have a good day !
