Umbilical hernias usually present as soft protrusion over the umbilicus. Few symptoms related to umbilical hernias are nausea, vomiting, fever, redness or discoloration, weakness, dizziness; pain.Severe pain can indicate strangulation when bowel or other tissue protrudes through the hernia. Constipation can be due to several other causes like drug induced, thyroid disorders, lack of dietary fiber in diet, colonic inertia etc.Anal itching could be due to pinworms, anal fissures,haemorrhoids etc.Consult a doctor for your symptoms .They may not be related to your umbilical hernia.
Take care and good luck!
