Can Umbilical Granuloma Be Treated In Adults With Medication?
I have a 27-year-old wish to ask whether umbicalis granuloma my age can be removed with medication or should be surgically removed. Can BPJS be used
Thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com,
Umbilicalis granuloma is a condition in which granulation tissue settles at the base of the umbilicus / navel after it is separated from the umbilical cord. The network consists of fibroblasts and capillary blood vessels that can grow more than 1 cm. Uumbilical granulomas need to be distinguished from umbilical polyps (lumps in the umbilic region), or granulomas resulting from the patent / fixed umbilical uracus, umbilical hernia (lumps in the umbilical region due to abdominal wall that does not close completely), or infection of the granuloma / umbilical lump . Secondary polyps and granulomas do not respond to silver nitrate catheterization.
Some abnormalities in the umbilical region can occur in addition to umbilical granuloma, generally this condition has appeared since young. The condition for umbilical granuloma can be treated with the application of silver nitrate, but if it does not persist then surgery becomes a modality for removing the granuloma.
Umbilical granuloma is a disease condition that is listed in the International Classification of Diseases (ICD). However, to ascertain whether the availability of BPJS to service this disease can contact the BPJS Health office for more information.
Hopefully this information helps you,
