umbilical hernia and abdominal excercises?

I am a very physically active 28 year old male.  5'9", 177lbs.  I have a small umbilical hernia (1/2 inch protrusion at the top of the naval).  There is no pain present when the injury/surrounding area is palpated but there is a very strange, but very mild, discomfort.  My question is:  What sort of excerises can I do with an umbilical hernia?  Specifically, can I do abdominal excercies?  Other questions... What symptoms should I look for which could indicate that the hernia is becoming "strangulated"?  Is it worth seeking surgery for an umbilical hernia?
