I have a lump on the right side of my stomach, could my muscles, or fat, develop unevenly? if not, what could it be?

Possibly lipoma: Could be a lipoma which is a totally benign fatty tumor in the layer under the skin. Other possibilities include hernia especially if you have an incision in the area. Recommend you see your doctor for a simple physical exam to help determine what it is.
