Causes Of Painful Lump On Middle Upper Abdomen
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 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

Possible Hernia: A hernia is when the muscle in the abdomen splits and allows the tissue underneath to poke through. This sometimes creates a bump on your abdomen, but not always.
