Heya i was just wondering if anybody could help me i am having my 3rd child and a lump has appeared above my belly button i havent had this before and it hurts when theres pressure on it.
I found a lump above my belly button last year which is long and hard. I went to my doctor and he sent me for a cat scan with contrast which showed nothing. I can feel it more when I'm standing. Now I'm starting to have these symptoms, loose stools, pain and loss of appetite. My mother had ovarian cancer and I'm scared to death this is what I have, I made an appointment with the doctor for next week. I'm 46 and very anxious about this, I haven't been sleeping or eating much.
I have sharp pains and a small lump about 2 inches directly above my belly button. the pains are so bad i can't sleep. food soothes them very briefly but then they return. what could this be?

Having said this, after getting these 'contractions', it seems my belly is firmer and my uterus seems higher (like towards my belly button). These are just my thoughts, I dont know if this is true.
I have a hardness around my belly button and for about two months I've had slight bloating. I'm currently on Microgynon 30 which are 21 day birth control pills, will these affect my stomach like this? My periods during the first few months were fairly heavy/normal, but lighter than usual.
I have had an umbilical hernia, I had surgery about 3yrs ago & now I'm afraid its starting to come back. My belly area is swelling up a bit & above belly button is getting a little hard when I lay down you can feel something moving around in my belly button. Is it possible for this to come back? oh & I'm starting to get constipated alot again. What should I do??
Mine never really hurt unless pushed on but lately with this pregnancy I have sharp pain around my belly button and the lump is getting bigger. It all depends on exactly where it's located and how bad it is for if it's serious or not.
stinky belly button can result from an imbalance in body chemistry. try cleansing your belly button with a q-tip dipped in tea tree oil twice a day for a week... it's great for clearing up bacteria and fungus and will likely resolve it. good luck!
The other day, I bumped that area on the countertop and realized it was sore--feels like bruising. Then I noticed that there is a hard lump just next to my belly button that is sore (also could be sore from pushing on it though!). It doesn't really hurt, but is sort of a burning pain inside (not severe), comes and goes, worse obviously when I push on it, and it feels like it's bruised or something.
I also have known, but did I tell the doctor that I have a large bulge above my belly button, which was coming and going. The last four or five days it is here to stay. Does that sound like, yet another hernia. If so, what can be done. My middle is nothing but scars and bulges. Thank you! Has anyone else experienced this after surgery(ies)?
I've had a small area about 3in x 3in with about 50 red pimples midway between my penis and my belly button for about 2 wks now. It doesn't itch or bother me, it's just unnerving. I scratched a few open and there is no visible puss, just a few drops of blood. Most look like the first stage of an acne but are red on top. They seems to go away slightly when I shower, but come back by the next day.
5 inches high, centrally located in my abdomen about 3 inches below my sternum and 2 inches above my belly button. I often feel full and uncomfortable when sitting and if I lie flat, it is easier to feel. I tried to see what organs were in that area online and saw the stomach and pancreas, so I am concerned... Do you have any idea what it could be. I am a 49 year old woman.
I've just discovered a large lump protruding from just above my belly button. It doesn't hurt unless I touch it in which it is very sore to the touch. It's probably 2X2 inches. I have been taking antibiotics (penicillin) for about 2 weeks. Could this have anything to do with it? what else could it be?
I got a little lump about 3 to 4 inches above my belly button, there is no significant pain coming from that area but lately my stomach has been feeling wierd, there are some areas that do have aches but dont necessarily hurt but still is very uncomfortable, i am also feeling like i have to go number 2 alot...any suggestions of what this could be?
then,it started to wrinkle up,and when i felt that,i had ben look at it,and he said,oh wow,it looks like another belly button..i went to the er,the lady triaging me in,actually THOUGHT it was my belly button!!untill i showed that time,the dx me with a very large seroma,gav me antibiotics,and sent me on my way...within 2 weeks of being at the er,a tiny little hole opened up,and fluid started coming out(gushing actually)..they told me it was draining,and that was a good sign..
I have a small lump in my armpit and it feels like its bruised.. any ideas what it is??? Its pretty small and tender.
if it does i would suggest its a hernia, if it doesnt' then its probably not, i have only had experience with ingrunal hernia's in your groin, you can get hernias in 5 spots i believe 2 sides of your groin (mostly in men), in your belly button (women mostly from child birth, or children born with them, however they are not uncommon in men) you can get them in your upper leg, and another spot on your tummy too....
For sometime now ive had this lump on my lower right side of my stomach, just above my vagina and a little in from my hip bone.It has not been painful. Sometimes i experience sharps pains up my upper right side.Its not a soft lump,its rather hard..kind of like a muscle feeling?If that makes sense. When I stand up and look down the right side of my lower tummy is a little higher then my left.
For the past couple of months I've noticed a small lump (about 1/2 inch diameter) on the upper left quadrent of my body ( apprx. 2in above and left of belly button). I feel no pain or discomfort but sometimes especially when I think about it or press on it, I feel a slight heaviness around this area. I am a 49 years old male with a clean history concerning health problems and no surgeries of any kind.
They gave me a Laparoscopy so they could check out the surrounding organs and the other ovary and everything was perfect. I had an incision in my belly button (which has only stopped leaking from an infection) a 5cm line above my bikini line, a little incision on my left side and a incision on my right side, which is near my lump now. It makes sense if this is related to everything that has happened, but I don’t understand why it is getting worse.
The incision in question is one-inch-long and the protruding lump above it makes it look like I have a second belly button! Lovely, no? The lump is longer than the incision and protrudes almost an inch beyond my normal stomach line. The protrusion is not even - it extends outward more on the left side than the right. It's also pretty hard. I just hope I'm not developing nasty scar tissue that will require surgery. Does this description sound consistent with yours?
a little bigger than a baseball) that i can occasionally feel just below my rib cage and above my belly button. When I feel it I can feel a rythmic pulse... just actually feeling it is uncomfortable, and it moves about... Occasionally I get sharp rapid pains under both sides of my rib cage and even experience speratic episodes of breath shortness... I dont know if any of these are connected.... Does anyone know if this is normal?
lumps that have been there for 3 months aren't due to herpes. you need to continue following up on this with a dermatologist.
Hi. Since April I have had pain above my left breast. It's not constantly there, but it comes and goes. Sometimes it feels like a burning pain, other times it feels like a cramp. I've also felt it in my armpit at times and it will also creep up over my shoulder. Although I VERY RARELY feel it on the right side, it DOES happen once in awhile. But for the most part it's been my left side.
For a few months now I have noticed that I can feel a small lump in the left side of my abdomen, about 2 inches above my belly button and below my left ribcage. It is not painful, and I can palpate it, especially after I've eaten a large meal. When I eat it seems to pop out a little bit, and to me it just feels like a baby kicking, but it's in my upper left abdomen. The only health problems I have had are a history of hashimoto's thyroiditis.
It starts right at the bottom edge of my rib cage, and about 1 inch in from my side, then it stops right when it gets to my belly button. It moves around easily, and it feels smooth not bumpy, but it is very hard, and is just smaller than the size of both of my fists put together side to side. I have had no pain, tenderness, or any kind of stomach upset or indigestion at all. I am female, only 23, and am 5'9" 120 pounds.
I recently found a small lump below my belly button to the left. I went to the dr. and he immediately asked me how are my bowels? I have been going to the bathroom regulary however after he mentioned that, I have noticed that when I have a bowel movement my waste has been somewhat "hard" and also "broken up" its like small peices coming out as apose to " a log" or "logs". lol.
Hi everyone, My mother has been a long time Ovarian Cancer survivor, and has gone through many relapses. Last night, she developed a lump, about 2cm to the right above her belly button. It feels like a soft rubbery tennis ball. BUT, the only difference between this lump and the hard rubber feel lumps she had before was, this lump when pressed on it, you can hear water/air sounds. I can continuously press on it, and it will make soft water/air sounds.
i have the same kinda thing its a fair sized lump above my belly button and slight pain when pushed on and i have sharp pains around my left ribs and down that come and go but mainly around my ribs i continue to have sharp pains as if being poked with a sharp knife? its hard to explain but ive been to the dr a few times and they all say its fine and i got blood tests and they came back normal and im worried that somethings wrong and their not paying too much attention to it.
