In brief: R/O LIPOMA

If the lump is on the stomach that is movable it is less worisome and may be a lipoma.
You need a Ultrasound is needed to evaluate for /CYST/LIPOMA/less likely clot Please seek prompt evaluation for this issue if symptoms persist or worsen.

Agree with Dr. Feola that it is likely nothing to worry about as long as it doesn't become symptomatic. If it starts to bother you or get bigger, it may be time to see a surgeon to consider removal. If it is still small, it may be able to be removed in the office.

Many, if not most surgeons wouldn't get an ultrasound, because the treatment is the same whether it's a cyst or a lipoma or another type of mass under the skin.
