Question: bleeding belly button
|msblenda - Wed Jan 02, 2008 7:37 pm||
my friend is having pain around his belly button and some bleeding. the bleeding has happened before with a discharge and an odor.could you give me general possibilities on what this might be?

Umbilical bleeding, discharge and odor, generally speaking, indicates an underlying infection and warrants further evaluation by a physician. I would very strongly encourage your friend to seek medical attention. Best wishes.
