Not a tumor: During diets, the weight loss may not be uniform and you lose weight in areas like your extremities but not the torso. If you have a sustained weight loss, than over time your body will decrease the torso or waist area and you can decrease your size.

Could I have a hernia and or an internal tumor male 5ft 10 240lbs. All my limbs and butt normal and practicaly fat free. Stomach area feels very hard but when i lay on my back and tighten my torsoe muscles I have a very soft bulge 3 to 4 in high 3 in wide

If : If you have never had previous surgery on the abdomen it would be unusual to have a hernia of that size in that location. Having said that, based on your height and weight it is more likely that you have a hernia (rather than a tumor) or more likely a "rectus diastasis" which comes from a thinning out of tissues under the skin and could be thought of as an early hernia. A very brief exam in your doctor's office should be able to differentiate between the two. ...Read more

Get information: You could have a condition called neurofibromatosis in which benign tumors arise from peripheral branches of the nerve supply. This is inherited (do other members of your family or ancestry have this?). See your internist or perhaps a dermatologist for more information. ...Read more

Headaches: You have a myriad of signs & sx which could represent primary neuromuscular, hypochondriacal, infectious, degenerative, or auto-immune diseases. A primary brain tumor is unlikely. It sounds like you consulted a neurologist, wi no specific findings. Are your sx episodic, periodic? Do they only occur at home? At work? Can you associate them with any specific activities? Need more information here. ...Read more
