Ok. I have noticed something that has me a little concerned. I am a big guy. I admit to being overweight and I am trying to lose it but that is not the problem. I have a deep naval cavity. Here lately I have noticed a few times within my naval cavity dried blood. I clean it out and a few days later I see it again. Last night I cleaned it out and used a q-tip to see if it was maybe a sore or something. I think I may have like a sore in there but I was wondering if this could be symptoms of something else. I didnt know what section to look under.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
It could be sinus tract. Consult general surgeon to evaluate you.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
