Hi there.
Thank you for your question.
I will be helping you out with your queries.
This is not a hernia.
This can happen normally as well.
It is nothing to worry about.
If you have a picture for me to see that will make things clear.
But from what you are describing it seems UNLIKELY to be a hernia.
Let me know if you have more questions.
