She Felt a Massive Lump on Her Belly… What She Yanked Out With Tweezers? OMG

Recently a woman had to learn the hard way what happens if you don’t take the time to clean your belly button out properly. (Wow…that’s just the opening line, and I’m already disgusted) After feeling a hard lump, she made the choice to investigate with a pair of tweezers. Go ahead and take a moment to prepare yourself…before this next bit here.

According to the video’s description, the black object removed was actually a naval stone. According to Mirror, “Navel stones are also known as omphaloiths or umboilths and are masses made up of sebum and keratin deposition that oxidises into a solid, black accretion.”

The Dermatologist explains, “For many individuals, a direct relationship to personal hygiene has been shown: omphaloliths occur in people who are neglectful about cleaning, or are unable to clean, their umbilicus regularly.”

As one can see in the video, the woman seems to have a rather narrow belly button, which is more than likely rather difficult to properly clean. Although it’s unclear how long it took for this naval stone to develop, she’s finally rid of the thing – for now.

The Dermatologist explains, “For many individuals, a direct relationship to personal hygiene has been shown: omphaloliths occur in people who are neglectful about cleaning, or are unable to clean, their umbilicus regularly.”

“Health providers have removed ‘growths’ from belly buttons that turned out to be a mix of bacteria, dirt, sweat, soap, lotions, and lint,” says Alexandria V. Booth, M.D., a board-certified dermatologist with HealthCare Partners medical group. “Talk about an embarrassing doctor’s visit — they go in for what they think is skin cancer and find out it’s just years of dirt.”
