Why does my belly hurt while bending?
Hello, I am 40 years old male. I experience pain around the belly button when I bend over. The pain is a short stabbing pain but quickly disappears when I change position, I have no other symptoms what could this be? Is this the symptom of a hernia? Can anyone tell me why my belly hurt while bending?
@kharlton Hello, it could be a hernia. A lump in the abdomen is caused by a hernia. An abdominal hernia occurs when there is a weak spot in the abdominal wall. This allows the internal organs to bulge through the muscles of the abdomen. A hernia may appear after you strain or lift something heavy, or after a long period of coughing. Kindly talk to your doctor. Thanks!
