While benching I felt a pain in my stomach. I thought "oh no hernia!". So I stopped. 4 days later I went back to the gym and nothing...I was fine (so I thought). Next day I go back to lift and I feel it again. This time a little worse, an inch above my belly-button. I feel...a ball. about the size and texture of an olive, slightly hard to the touch. I said "Must be a hernia". I asked my nephew who is no MD but has had a hernia before and he claims hernias are soft and typically not in the area where my 'thing' is.

So, what is this 'thing'? Oh and I am going to the doc monday, but for now its up to you guys to diagnose. Anyone have an idea?

Yeah man, that sounds like something for the doctor. I haven't heard that type of thing before.

Hernias can occur anywhere where there is a weakness in muscular wall. There are areas that are common sites for hernias, but that does not necessarily mean that cannot occur anywhere else.

I have the samething, except mine came gradually and is much smaller, like a grain of rice,but still hurts, especially after a hard abs workout.

This is a belly button hernia. If you do not get it repaired it will grow. When you get it repaired get it done laproscopic. This way you will heal faster and be back at the gym soon.
