I have noticed that a bulge has occurred in my belly button area. Due to this, I feel severe pain in the bowel movement. Then I consulted a General Practitioner and he told that it is the symptom of Umbilical hernia and asked me to consult a hernia surgeon ( http://www.shouldice.com/the_shouldice_repair.htm ) at the earliest. Is hernia surgery is necessary for me or Is there any non surgical treatments for this ?
