View Full Version : Lump in chest/Abs

03-01-2008, 12:40 AM
On my right upper ab. a lump is starting to grow. At first I just thought my right ab was being developed largely, but instead it turned out to be a lump. I can not move it around, its fairly hard. and its a little bigger than twice the size of my other abs. It isn't hot or painful and it doesn't pulsate. Anyone have a clue what it is?

Maybe take a picture and describe the lump to us?

Is it hard or soft? Can you move it around? Is it hot and painful? Does it feel like a collection of fluid or something else? How big is it? Does it have defined edges? Is it deep to the rest of the tissues on your abs, or above them? Does it pulsate?

All these questions would be helpful.

sounds like it might be a hernia...see a doctor.

Yeah that sounds serious. Definitely go to the doctor.
