Infection: Could be a mild infection- check with your doctor for a more detailed history, exam and to see if antibiotic is needed.

Constipated: Most likely nothing is wrong. The lumps you are feeling may be stool in the colon - try increasing you fluids and over the counter fiber or stool softener. If you’re still feeling lumps after a few normal bowel movements or any abdominal pain, follow up with your doctor. Best wishes
