I took my cat to vet since he has something hard on his bellybutton area (right on top about
size of quarter coin. The vet said either a hernia or tumor..
Has anyone ever had this problem, if so what happened?

What did the vet recommend for next steps? I would assume they need to figure what it is which would probably require an ultrasound, maybe an MRI. If it's a hernia, surgery is needed to repair it, prognosis is good. If it's a tumor they will need to figure out whether it can be removed and what the prognosis is with and without surgery and/or follow up treatment Then you have a decision to make. Good luck....fingers crossed for a hernia.
