It feels like I have a small marble lodged in my abdomin wall under the belly button. I can feel the ridge of muscle to either side when I push in and in the middle is this little lump. At first I thought it was a cyst or swollen lymph node but it does seem to expand when I cough. It's under about 2 inches of fat and doesn't stick up through the skin.
I thought umbilical hernias were more of a soft bubble? This feels like a childs boney knuckle protruding from my abdomen wall.

A hernia is a sac of tissue and/or muscle. Sometimes it's hard to feel them or determine if in fact it is a hernia, it sounds like it could be a hernia from your description of when you cough. A doctor who specializes in hernias can check or your general doctor may check then order a CT scan to confirm it is in fact a hernia.
Have you seen a doctor?
