Soft tissue mass: It could be a benign fatty tissue known as a lipoma, an overgrowth of skin called a granuloma, or an infected hair follicle. Apply some over the counter antibiotic ointment and leave it alone. If it gets larger or more painful, get an evaluation. ...Read more

Lump: Difficult to tell you what it is without a physical exam. It could be a sebaceous cyst, tiny abdominal wall hernia, tiny lipoma, aberrent lymph node..... Please see your physician to examine it and perhaps have it biopsied and removed. Even some benign lumps like lipomas can cause discomfort sometimes. ...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. Hernias can be repaired with routine surgery. You need to have this evaluated by your doctor as untreated hernias can become strangulated and cause severe problems. ...Read more
