I am experiencing pulsatile mass in my abd. I noticed it a year ago, it has gotten larger and the pulse is stronger. The pulse is very visible.

This is a bulging of your aorta, the main vessel in your body, and can is fatal if it ruptures. You need to get this examined and need an ultrasound or CT scan ordered by your doctor.

So you need to go see a physician for a physical examination followed by some X-Rays/CT scan to check the nature of the lump if the doctor can confirm that it is present there. ...Read more
