Is a small 5mm umbilical hernia something to be concerned about?

Could this be the cause of pressure under right rib cage and under breast bone. Dr says no. Gallbladder removed years ago. No ulcers. I've had every test out there. No acid reflux just alot of pressure for 6 weeks now.

A tiny fat-containing umbilical hernia is a common incidental finding usually of no clinical significance.

Hello~Have you seen a specialist for this issue, if not, that might be you best plan of action. It would appear to me that you may need some scans of that area to rule out anything serious.
