Patient :I feel a hard tennis ball size lump , with a very strong pulse ,in the center of my abdomen , starting 2 inches above my navel ,under my abdominal muscles, when I lay flat on the floor relaxing my abs. What could it be?
Thank you for writing to us.
This sounds like an abdominal hernia but I cannot be completely sure. Please see a Doctor to confirm the diagnosis. After this, the treatment will be by surgical repair. All the best. Wishing you good health,
Hope this helps you
