Abdominal Mass Below 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.

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.

Symptoms vary with the cause & location of the mass and its rate of growth.

I am 16 weeks and I just had a pain in the lower abdomen, below the belly button. I'm wondering if its normal or if I should be worried.
I'm 27 male. I have an pain in my right side of my abdominal area, about 2 inch below the belly button. It feels like my right testicle hurts too.
Could be a hernia: Increasing pressure in the abdominal area can cause a defect in the abdominal wall muscular to become apparent, which is called a hernia. If there is a bulge that you feel, or mass, this may be the intestinal contents protruding through, called a 'ventral hernia.' this can be normal in babies, but should be evaluated by your doctor in an adult. ...Read more

Likely normal..: Sounds like the natural gurgling that goes on in your gut as a result of natural transit with digestive juices. If for some reason you are hearing it more and you are having discomfort from it, it may be from too much acid in your stomach. Try to avoid caffeinated products, spicy foods and fried foods- as well as regularizing your meals by eating at least 3 healthy portion meals per day. Be well! ...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
