I'm a 40 y/o male, waiting for health insurance, so I can't make a doc trip yet. I have severe continuous pain located behind my belly button. The area around the navel is firm. The button itself seems to be pushing out from the inside. I can push on the area and it seems to go back into my stomach. I think it started 7 weeks ago after a bad cough. I also think it's contributing to bowel problems I'm having. It would just be nice to have a clue as to what this pain is about while I'm waiting for the insurance to kick in. Thanks.
