Possibly an infected: urachal or pilonidal cyst. Both of these are cured with a simple surgical procedure which cuts out cyst and removes infection. His doctor must be ABSOLUTELY CERTAIN the lump is NOT a herniated BOWEL LOOP. Take a picture of the lump, and send me a HealthTap Concierge Message @ goo.gl/tch4sN with the picture attached.
