Causes Of Painful Lump On Left Upper Abdomen
I have a small lump in my upper abdomen. It is slightly left of my sternum. It is not painful, unless i manipulate it excessively. No symptoms noted. ?
Likely benign: Tiny lumps under the skin can be due to several things. If these don't move about under the skin when you push on them, they are probably skin cysts. IF they are deep in the skin and feel squishy, they may be noncancerous fatty growths called lipomas. If they move about under the skin and you think they are growing, then I suggest being seen to make sure that they are not lymph nodes. ...Read more

See your doctor: Small lumps around your umbilicus are usually not worrisome, but if they are new, or enlarging, have your doctor check them out. Sometimes the fat in your lower abdomen can form benign tumors called lipomas, which are generally harmless. ...Read more
Lump in my stomach. About 2 in long. 2 inches above my belly button slightly to the left.
Will rise to the surface and become visible. Then when mashed it's painful and will move.
Possible Hernia: By your description it sounds as if you may have a ventral hernia. I would like to know if you ever had any surgery in the past, including laparoscopic surgery. Frequently, with laparoscopic surgery a small incision is made around the umbilicus (belly button) and it is not uncommon that a piece of omentum (fat from inside the bell) or bowel could get caught. I would recommend a surgical evaluation ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Have it checked out: It sounds like you have a series of "lumps" or lymph nodes that are painful particularly on your left side. You should have it checked out to make sure there isn't an infection going on. Don't forget that the lymph nodes act as a drainage and filtration system to try to stop infection. They will swell and be painful. You also want to be sure the lymph nodes are not swollen because of cancer. ...Read more

In between my upper abdomen, there is a small 10mm ish lump. It is soft to touch and is only visible when I flex my abdomen.
Most likely a LIPOMA: A lipoma is a benign lump that can occur on your trunk and extremities, and actually anywhere under your skin. The only time they are surgically removed is if they aggravate you, like if they are under a belt or bra strap or cause pain with exercise. They also change size, sometimes small, sometimes larger, then going smaller. The only other thing to consider would be hernia of your intestines. ...Read more
