The Side Effect Of Not Having A Navel After Surgery Is A Purulent Lump Inside The Navel?
Good afternoon .. u003cbr u003eI just finished major surgery because there is a lump protruding from inside the navel, previously only a small lump (as big as a pimple) inside the navel and festering, but after 3 weeks the lump grew bigger and protruded out, if it was pressed or hit by clothes , the pain is excruciating. I have asked 6 doctors about my disease (including to a specialist surgeon), but they don’t know for sure what disease, they just think my disease is an abscess. After surgery, it turned out that the doctor had cut my stomach long (about 10 – 12 CM) and now I don’t have a belly button because it was sutured. What I want to ask:
Hello Rudi, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
The condition you are experiencing can be caused by several possibilities, including:
Infected uracus cyst
Infection and abscess of the navel
Infected benign tumors (eg atheroma cysts or lipomas)
Cancer of the bladder
If you look at your story, chances are what you have is an infected uracus cyst. The uracus cyst itself is a fluid-filled bag that is formed due to failure to close the uracus duct before delivery. The uracus duct is the tube that connects the uterus to your bladder while you are in the womb. Often uracus cysts do not cause any symptoms unless there is an infection, stones, or a cancerous growth in the uracus cyst.
The navel itself actually has no special function after you are born. The navel can be used as an anatomical marker of the body (for example, in pregnant women, it can be used as a marker for the height of the uterus to estimate gestational age), but apart from that, there are no other physiological functions. Not having a belly button will not affect your general health condition.
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
