Possible hernia: A hernia is a tear in the abdominal muscle. If you have one on your left side then it would show up as a bump in this area and might feel like a pulled muscle. Hernias need to be repaired surgically. Please have an evaluation by your medical doctor to determine what is going on and best course of treatment.

See your PCP: Unfortunately, without more medical history about your overall health and without the ability to examine the lump and characterize it better (pain, recent injury, etc), it is difficult to anticipate exactly what this might be. See your PCP for the proper diagnosis and treatment if needed.
