HARDENED ABDOMIN

Patient : Good day, I'm a 22 year old female, little over weight but not obese. I've been gaining weight all over probably due to lot of wrong foods. I've recently noticed from my top abdoman just bellow my breasts to my lower belly, are hard and firm underneath the fat. My first thought was that I might be pregnant, but I'm on the pill and I have not skipped any monthly period. Then I thought it could be three other things namely: cancer, tumor or just plain fat. Please advice me and give me a heads-up on whether this is serious and if this happens a lot.
