See a physician: This unfortunately cannot be well answered online. You really need to see a physician to have the lump physically examined. Factors such as associated pain, discoloration, rate of growth of the lump, will help your physician decide if the lump is of concern. ...Read more

Sounds like Gallbla-: dder problem, from your description. See your Doc and probable referral onto a GI Doc would be the way to proceed. I am sure your PCP should be able to figure it out, as the best way to deal with your problem. Good Luck. ...Read more
