Hello and thank you for posting your medical question on E health forum.

From the history provided, the presence of painful lump on the umbilicus could be a sign of a infected abscess.

You might benefit by a physical examination by a doctor, who if needed, can remove any infected pus and treat with antibiotics.

I hope this is helpful.

Painful lump on top side of bellybutton
I also have a painful lump on the upper side of my bellybutton. my other symptoms are nasuea, virtigo, and migranes. My stomach aches no matter what but laying on my stomach is definitly not a good idea as the pain is very bad. I know hernias can occur with straining your muscles but usually involve some sort of "pop" feeling but i have not had this. Also, I have a history of colon polyps although i have never had this pain before and I have a very sensitive stomach (i get acid reflux almost daily)
