3 pea sized hard lumps in abdomen, can feel them but can't see them....likely cancer?

Hard to say/depends,: It's hard to say what it could be without more information.

Best of luck. ...Read more

Hi. I can feel a small (pea sized) movable lump inside the belly fat at my left abdomen, just under my rib cage. What could it be?
