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

51yr male soft lump 4 in. Under navel and to right 3 in. Can feel when coughing not painful but uncomfortable seems to go away when lying on back?

51yr male soft lump 4 in. Under navel and to right 3 in. Can feel when coughing not painful but uncomfortable seems to go away when lying on back?

Sounds like hernia.: Location is not the important tissue here, it's the size that may allow bowel to become trapped, strangulated, and die, causing peritonitis and severe problems. This should be examined to verify if indeed it's a hernia (or perhaps a benign lipoma--fatty growth outside your abdomen). Hernia needs to be repaired; lipoma can be left alone or removed--they don't "go way" and only get bigger over time. ...Read more

Have about 10 tiny hard lumps under skin across upper abdomen. Not painful. What might this be?

Have about 10 tiny hard lumps under skin across upper abdomen. Not painful. What might this be?

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.

Lower left abdomen it's extremely painful when lent on or pressed. Lumps egg sized. Not constipated thanks.

Could be a hernia: The first thing that comes to mind with the above description is an incarcerated hernia, although there could be other causes as well. An incarcerated hernia is potentially, but not always a surgical emergency. It would require a hands-on examination by a surgeon to make that determination. Sometimes it requires immediate operation to prevent or treat gangrenous bowel. ...Read more

Painful golf ball sized lump when i push on my right abdomen right above my hip. Are there any special organs right there? It hurts

No special organs: Externally at the level of the skin, there are no special organs. However, if this protrudes as a lump, you have to consider a hernia or a mass in the wall of the abdomen. A hernia would be a defect in the wall of the abdomen that bowel can protrude through. This is often soft and compressible. A firm mass in the wall of the abdomen could be a tumor of some type. It is best to have it evaluated. ...Read more

I have  a couple of hard, nodular  lumps in upper abdomen   3 years painful if pressed  pain is sharp and goes through to back. Is it a lipoma?

Need 2 Be Seen: Lipomas are the most common cause of lumps under the skin (in the subq space), however they rarely cause shooting pain on palpation as you describe. I suggest that you make an appointment with your primary care doctor to help sort this out. ...Read more

Last week I felt a lump under my right ribs on the side so neither in the abdomen nor in the back. It is slightly painful when I press it. And recently in the right back side I feel like mild electric shocks every now and then. 
What could this be ?

Lump: If the lump is just under the skin and is freely moveable, it may be a benign growth of fatty tissue(lipoma). The jabbing shocks are most likely irritable superficial nerves. A physician would have to examine the lump for diagnosis and advice. ...Read more

Likely benign: There are a number of things that could present this way - almost all are benign and most do not need treatment. However, if the lump does not go away, you should eventually bring it to the attention of your doctor. If it becomes painful or if it is enlarging, then you should see your doctor about it promptly. ...Read more

Yesterday, I noticed a slight lump/bulge on my upper left abdomen below my rib cage after dinner. It is not painful. Is this anything to worry about?

Not yet.: I wouldn't worry too much just yet. It could be a harmless cyst or deposit of fat called a lipoma. It's something your doc should check out - not urgently, though. If it's not painful and you have no other symptoms, it could be done within 1-2 weeks. ...Read more

See your doctor: You need to see your doctor for a careful examination of these bulges. Many things can cause skin problems but without an examination it is hard to say. This could also be from deeper tissue in the lower abdomen and again an examination would be helpful to evaluate that. ...Read more
