I found a lump below my sternum on my abdomen. It is dead center left to right. It is painless. Also, ive become dizzy and tired. Is this related?

Sounds benign: But if I were you I would have a doctor palpate this mass and get some more information. My guess is that it is insignificant and has nothing much to do with either your dizziness or tiredness. Please feel free to peruse my page and write to me if the spirit moves you: www. Healthtap.

What are signs and symptoms of bowel obstruction?

Crampy pain, nausea: Bowel obstruction usually begins with loss of appetite and crampy pain in the abdomen. Usually, bowel gas and bowel movements slow down, and in some cases completely stop. Since food and saliva can't go anywhere, vomiting usually occurs. Most people who have a bowel obstruction have had previous surgery.

I have 2 hard lumps in my head they r about the size of a marble. Can they b a sign of bowel cancer ?

Unlikely: I'm not sure why you are concerned about "bowel cancer" from lumps in your head. Bowel cancer presents in many ways but head lumps is not one I'm familiar with. If you have blood in your bowel movements or abdominal pain or unexplained weight loss that might be suggestive. Either way you should see your primary care doctor for an evaluation.
