Has anybody ever heard of this???? Umbilical cord issue.

A 7 year old boy at our church kept complaining of stomach pain. His mother thought it was acid reflux and gave him some meds. He continued on until he was doubled over in pain and crying.
She took him to the Dr. where they did an ultrasound and found out that the inside part of his unmbilical cord had not absorbed back into his body like it was suppose to and it had turned into a huge cyst.
He is going to have to have surgery to remove it. I have never heard of this before.
