Health blueprint: The answer lies within our own bodies. If we stop the assault of unhealthy habits, we can tap into the bodies inherent capacity to heal itself. And the best tool we have for doing that is the food we eat. Eating a whole food plant based diet and pursuing an active lifestyle will get you down to a healthy weight and you will lose belly fat in the process. Good luck!

Maybe a hernia: Depending on the location, it could be a hernia, a muscle spasm, or a cyst or fatty rumor under the skin. Best to get it checked out by a primary care provider. Hope this helps!

How long, how deep?: Could be a cyst, or a small herniation. Sometimes if you lose weight things that have been there before are suddenly visible or palpable. I'd suggest you consult with your own primary care practitioner, or perhaps an urgent care.

Yes it could be: Any painless mass which is hard in consistency can be a serious matter. So get yourself over to see your doctor soon and find out what it is. It will take a physical exam and possibly a ct scan of the abdomen once the doctor has confirm the presence of a mass/growth.

Liver disease: Can cause a fluid build up in the abdomen that can make an older person look pregnant--it's called ascites. She should go to the doctor to have basic blood work done to see if her liver is not functioning as well as it should. This can be a life threatening issue if not solved quickly. A history of hepatitis puts her at higher risk.

Needs evaluation..: This could be related to many different things: hernia, lipoma (fat mass), tumor, among others. This requires direct exam and possible testing as necessary. My recommendation is to go and see a doctor for check up and final diagnosis.

Hard ball in the center of abdomen pain and moving around. What does this sound like?

Maybe a hernia.: Your description is not clear. Skin lesions are very superficial, there are fat tumors that could grow under the skin. Hernias come a little deeper through the muscle layer. And inside the abdominal cavity there are multiple organs many of which could have abnormalities that hurt or feel like a ball. Suggest a visit to your pcp. Hope is helps.

Squishy and stretche: After the baby is delivered your abdominal wall will remain stretched out and squishy for a couple of months. It takes a while for the muscles and fascia (the hard, fiber layer above and below the rectus muscles of the abdomen) to tighten back down. Exercise helps, but time is needed as well.

You should see a MD: It sounds like you may have a cyst and it should be examined. In the meantime, cover it with triple antibiotic (neosporin) and a bandaid or gauze and try not to get it infected by manipulating it.

Is this concerning?: If this is something new and uncomfortable you need to b seen by your regular doc. Have your bowel movements changed recently? Is it tender to push on your belly? There are a number of things that this could be from constipation to all sorts of abdominal issues.

Testical prob- a week ago experience pain in left ball\low abdomen. No pain now but both my ball hang too low more than use to be. Can I send pics?

Here are some. ..: For your testicular pain. etc, if recurring, please watch, collect, & bring the info on the onset, degree, duration, interval, progress, other related discomfort of the symptoms over time to Doc for analysis, physicals, tests as needed to make sure of no testicular torsion, hernia, etc. As to the low-hanging scrotum, most likely, that is a normal anatomical variation, which usually requires no Rx
