Doctor: HelloThanks for using “Ask The Doctor” to post your query.It is difficult to pinpoint the deformity without examin ing your personally. But its possible that it could be a gap in the abdomen wall and may be presenting with hernia as well. It would be wise to get an Ultra Sound examination of the abdomen or a CT scan of the abdomen. These investigations don’t take much time and will confirm the nature of deformity.Do meet your doctor and discuss these options.Hope this helps,Wish you a good health.
