Umbilical Granuloma

This factsheet (updated 2017) explains to parents what could happen with their baby’s tummy button.

An umbilical granuloma is an overgrowth of tissue during the healing process of the belly button (umbilicus). It usually looks like a soft pink or red lump and often is wet or leaks small amounts of clear or yellow fluid. It is most common in the first few weeks of a baby’s life.
