In brief: Fat mass

This could be a lipoma (benign fatty tumor) or even an infarcted appendix epiploica.
These are the normal fatty projections of fat that are attached to the colon. Sometimes these get twisted and die off. Speak with you doctor. 1.3 cm is a pretty small mass. Chances are its benign.
