Abdominal Mass Above The Belly Button
Mass in lower left quadrant of abdomen. 2in to the left of the belly button, mildly painful but not too severe.
Abnormal structure: This means there is something abnormal on a physical exam (doctor can feel the abnormality) or something seen on an imaging study, such as an Xray or CT scan. This abnormality occupies space, it has physical dimensions, unlike something like an abnormal blood test. Many possible causes, fluid collection, intestine distended with gas, most serious would be a cancer. ...Read more

I have an abdominal lump (upper left) This grew when I have tried to do exercises for abdomen. Is it the exercises that caused this lump?
I doubt it: If you have a lump anywhere, it needs to be checked by a doctor as it can be a cancer. Exercise is unlikely to create any kind of lumps. It may be simply a coincidence and it is totally unrelated to exercise. So you need to go see a physician for a physical examination followed by some X-Rays/CT scan to check the nature of the lump if the doctor can confirm that it is present there. ...Read more
Not necessarily.: "mass" is a vague term often used to describe a lump found on physical examination. Possible causes include those arising from the abdominal wall or from within the abdominal cavity. This finding warrants a more detailed search, which may include an ultrasound +/- a ct of the abdomen. As we like to say, "walk before you run": don't reach too many conclusions until your doctor completes their eval. ...Read more

On what the mass is. Some are benign tumors, hernias, abscesses, or malignant tumors and depending on what it is and where it is and if caught early, can be curable.

Pressure-Related: An abdominal mass can be due to many different diseases, some trivial, others life threatening (hernia, cancer, benign tumor, aneurysm, infection, etc.). Symptoms vary with the cause & location of the mass and its rate of growth. In general, if pushing against other organs, pain is common (although, slow growing tumors can reach large sizes while "flying under the radar"). ...Read more

My abdomen feels like a hard soft bubble. When I bend back it pop up like a mountain just above the belly button but only in the middle area.
I have stabbing pain in the middle of the abdomen about 3 inches above the belly button. I too 2 Hyoscyamine and 2 advils but nothing is helping. I have been admitted to UTSW for this similar pain back in November and they did all kinds of tests there an
Get 2nd opinion: Since we have no idea as to what kinds of tests you underwent, it is hard to give you any guidance. Recommend that you stop Advil (ibuprofen) since it may only make the problem worse. Hyoscyamine slows down the bowel but that may not be desirable either. Have you have an endoscopic exam, abdominal CT etc? ...Read more
I have a profound "heartbeat" in abdomen. Just above belly button. Should I be concerned about this?
without knowing your age, eating habits, body habitus (weight, bmi), complete blood count and other lab tests, past medical history, a simple "no" or "yes" answer will not suffice. I would recommend visiting your primary care physician to discuss all of these. In general, thin individuals when laying flat on their back, can see their abdominal aorta (i.e. "heartbeat" in the abdomen) pulsating which delivers oxygen to the lower parts of your body, and this is normal. However, if you are having symptoms, have a past history or family history of "heart problems", it would be wise to discuss this with your physician. ...Read more
I have a dull pain in my right abdomen about 2 to 4 inches right of my belly button I've had it for weeks what could this be.?
Very difficult to answer a question like this without doing a physical exam.
If you have a firm abdomen without pain, the most likely explanation is enlargement of some abdominal that would otherwise be too small to feel. The structures most likely to do this in the upper abdomen are the liver and spleen. The tipoff to this being the case is that you might feel a sudden transition from hard to soft--this being the lower edge of the enlarged organ.
It's definitely worth seeing your doctor for an exam. ...Read more
