CT scan?: If lump is large, pub should have a ct scan to look inside rather than plain xrays. If it is smaller, and can be pushed in, it is likely a hernia. Ask your primary care provider about these at your next appointment. Within the next week or two to find if this is appropriate. Hope this helps! ...Read more

Sounds like a hernia: Probably a hernia. Ok to see a primary care provider for an exam. No emergency is its not too painful, but should get it checked out. Timing of evaluation depends on length of time it has been there, and severity of symptoms. Hope this helps! ...Read more

Whats this lump on my lower left abdomen? Constipated.

Stool or tumor: Most likely if constipated, the 'lump' is retained stool. However in adults colon cancer or other pressure can cause a change in bowel habits. If you have experienced a change in bowel habits or see blood in stool, you should see your doctor as soon as possible. ...Read more

Cyst or benign growt: This could be a sebaceous cyst, a fibroma, or a benign tumor like a lipoma; or if red and tender, an infected deep "pimple" or cyst (called a furuncle). It does not sound dangerous in any case, but have it evaluated. ...Read more

A Hernia, Perhaps: There are few abdominal lumps that can actually decrease in size w/manipulation other than a hernia. A hernia is a hole in the abdominal wall thru which the internal lining of the abdominal cavity protrudes, creating a sac. Internal contents such as fat or even intestines can enter this sac. The location of your lump may be related to an inguinal or spigelian hernia. Please see a hernia surgeon. ...Read more

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
