Abdominal lump: If the lump above your belly button now appears gone to you, and a physical exam and an ultrasound of that area are now negative, it is unlikely that anything serious is going on there. Of course, if it returns, you should return back to your dr. for a repeat examination. I wouldn't worry about it otherwise. Good luck.
