Specializes in Obstetrics and Gynecology

11 wks post delivery: If you had a C-section, the "lump" is probably a hematoma, or stitch abscess. If you had a normal delivery, this mass could be a hernia or a torn abdominal muscle. See your OB physician for an exam. All of the above are easily treated.
