Hi welcome to healthcare magic forum

Since the lump disappears on pressing it and pops out on cough or abdominal pressure suggestive of umbilical hernia.... you are to be clinically examined and if necessary USG will be done.. consult a general surgeon..

Greetings Doc, I am 30 years old male, around 6 feet tall & weighing 90Kgs. Of late i have started feeling a split second numbness sensation around my throat & face/ blackout sensation while swallowing saliva alone. It s not there while swallowing food/chewing anything or even drinking water. It s like something has got stuck to my upper throat. Sometimes, immediately after the numbness, i have difficulty in breathing for 1-2 seconds & my chest feels heavy. I was diagnosed with Hiatus Hernia (by birth) in 2005 and underwent ballooning . Kindly advise. P.S: I am a regular smoker - Upto 20 Cigs a day or more.
