It's para umbilical hernia ..n main cause is malnutrition ...bcoz of Rickets ..n weakness of muscle ..organ is prolapse it's hernia ...n it's non compressible than it's going to serious condition .mif not corrected early than it's also can be converted in to obstructing hernia also ..
Get a Ultrasound abdomen to done arrive at a diagnosis. With 10 days history unlikely to be a hernia . A cystic infra umbilical mass needs evaluation. If USG is inconclusive, MRI may be needed for definitive treatment I.e surgery
The swelling doesn’t look like umbilical hernia. Most probably it looks like umbilical tumour. Do USG of the results.CT is good but radiation in child should be avoided.If affordable MRI can be useful.
Thank you doctor
