Diagnostics of the umbilical hernia
An examination for an umbilical hernia is done by a pediatrician or surgeon. When examining the patient, attention is drawn to the presence of a spherical protrusion in the umbilical region. Sometimes in the area of the hernia, through the thinned skin, the contours of the intestinal loops and peristalsis are noticeable.
