Cyst or lipoma: If this lump is just under the skin, and changes in size, it is likely an inclusion cyst, a benign growth related to the skin elements. Sometimes a fatty tumor, or lipoma, can present this way, and is also a benign condition. See your physician if you have concerns, as most can be excised in the office under local anesthesia. ...Read more

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. It depends on where the lumps are in the abdomen, how long they've been there, and what other history you've got, if any. If you've got no diseases, and normal labs it's highly unlikely they're anything. If you're still worried it's a good idea to see your doctor for an exam, tests, and possible referral. Best of luck. ...Read more

I got a pea sized lump on my abdomen but I don't know what it is. What should I do?

Different options: That area has a lot of things in it both in the skin and below it. Sweat glands, hair follicles and skin cysts as well as lymph nodes, fatty tissue, vessels, muscles and other things. Is the lump growing, inflamed, painful, painless, draining, recurrent or constant, moveable or fixed...? Each of these (and many more) will provide your doc the answers as to what it is and what needs to be done. ...Read more

Lipoma: Often times these are lipomas, which are simply benign masses of fatty tissue. Very rarely do these cause any problems - in rare cases, there may be persistent surrounding inflammation which leads a patient to ask for removal of the lipoma. As with any lesion, if there is significant increase in size, or significant pain, redness, discoloration, or any other concerning sign, do see a physician. ...Read more

My 5 year old daughter has a bruise on the lower left side of her abdomen. About two days ago it was the size of a pea now it is bigger with lump?

Most likely: She bruised herself while playing. The contusion at that area was mostly hidden except for the pea size lump as the time passed more of it has come to the skin as it resorbs. If it is still there in a week or if other symptoms develop, take her to be seen. ...Read more

Can 3 hard pea sized lumps under the skin in abdomen just be lipomas? Doctor wasn't worried, does it need to be biopsy?

Possibly: Lipomas can be any size from very small to very large.

You have hemorrhoid: This is a hemorrhoid. Get steroid cream and stick it waaay up there. U know where. It could pop on you, cause bleeding. Unless its a lot don't worry about it. If it keeps happening, see a GI doctor to get rid of them. Don't strain hard. Eat fiber to keep stool soft. Cream should take care of it for now though. If it's too big, it might need the doc but see how the cream works. Take care. ...Read more

Pea size & on nickel size lumps right side stomach pain when I bend Ct scan negative blood test normal gas right side dull pain off and on I have ibs red blood in stool twice dr say hemrodes I get ultrasound Tuesday?

Good work up: With a negative CT, the lumps are likely just "skin deep" and a physician's examination is the next step to form a treatment plan or to gain reassurance that no treatment is needed. Ultrasound is the correct next step for the abdominal pain, although there is low likelihood that any disease process identified is particularly severe in light of the CT scan. Hemorrhoids will cause blood in the stool ...Read more
