After the baby is born, the umbilical cord is cut and a small piece is left attached to the baby. This part of the cord usually falls off on its own within 1 to 3 weeks after birth. In some cases, however, the healing process is delayed and extra scar tissue forms at the base of the cord after it has fallen off.</p> <p>Umbilical granulomas cause no pain, but they may discharge a fluid that can make the surrounding skin appear red and irritated.</p> <h3>Keep in Mind</h3> <p>Umbilical granulomas are easily treated with simple procedures and cause no lasting problems.</p> <p><em>All A to Z dictionary entries are regularly reviewed by KidsHealth medical experts.</em></p>
