Post :( Tumor coming out of belly button

I know this sounds crazy but I think my husband has a tumor coming through his belly button - either that or it has herniated.

He has always been a heavy drinker - actually although he doesn't drink that much anymore he does have about a six pack a day - I would classify him as an alcoholic - and in the last few years has gotten quite a beer belly. He will never go to the doctor unless he is in intense pain.

I have read that it could be an umbilical hernia because of fluid build up if he has cirrohsis. I don't know if he has cirrohsis but he did have hepatitis (alcohol induced) a while back and pancreatitis. I don't know what a hernia would look like as opposed to a tumor.

I am really worried about this but he doesn't want to hear about it and definitely will not go to the doctor.

Has anyone had something like this or known anyone with a similar problem?

I have something similar. I'm going to the dermatologist today. I would suggest that your husband do the same.

The only way my husband will ever go to the doctor is if he is in intense pain or unconscious.

Let me know what your doctor says. Thanks.
